As I started back to my office I gave a final look down the corridor, and suddenly she was there, framed in the stairwell. She was dressed in a very fetching pirate costume, the purposely ragged bottoms of her scarlet pants reaching to just below the hips. Her legs were bare from there on down to black oilcloth boots. She hadn’t moved, and a new sensation blew cold across the back of my neck. As I lunged for her she crumbled and fell backwards down the yawning stairwell.

    Corpus Delectable is the final volume of the five that comprise the Ed Rivers series, a fine example of a pulp -era detective series. This one, of course, takes place in Tampa, at that time the most Latin of American cities with a large Cuban and South American population. This story takes place during the Gasparilla festival, Tampa's annual pirate festival that sounds like their own version of Mardi Gras with endless parades and parties and costumes. Into this whirlwind of fiestas, walks a mysterious but beautiful client and a man with a gun. There's lots of action in this one and a clever scheme unfolds in deadly earnest before Rivers can unravel it and before he can prevent innocents from getting in the way. Also, big old Ed may have met his match with a killer as deadly as he is himself. This is a good, solid, action-packed, easy-to-read story just as we've come to expect from Talmage Powell.
