    Henry Kane created his private eye, a New York City shamus called Peter Chambers and, beginning in 1947 and continuing through 1972, twenty-five years later, he published thirty Chambers novels and numerous short stories. The early Chambers stories are quite a bit of fun. Chambers has a personal connection with Detective Parker, nearly always a drink and a dame on his arms, and a quick wit with a wry sense of humor. Rumor has it that the later Chambers novels were decidedly pedestrian in comparison to the earlier ones and quite tawdry too. Never Give A Millionaire is one of the mid to later Chambers novels. Much of it involves Chambers hobnobbing it up with the wealthy set, including a Broadway actress he was dating and two millionaires who wanted her for keeps. He feels like he's out of his element for much of it and these new so-called friends are all in a web together bound by crazy divorce settlements and blackmail. There's bodies popping up in locked rooms and bodies disappearing and, of course, Miss Sweden who came here for the pageant and never left. Much of it is lighthearted banter and entertaining to read. But, the overall plot is a bit convoluted and lacks a clear focus.

    I'll just put this down as a passage from this hoot of a pulp fiction story:The lady was in magical white. The lady was tall with golden hair. The lady was a majestic woman in flowing gown with white skin and blue eyes and full mouth of red lips. She stood out like a feudal queen among feuding serfs. She was placid �peaceful is a better word�because fire showed in every move. She was graceful, imperious, calm, contained, and blonde. She was blonde through and through, from the texture of her skin to the luminous quality of the huge blue eyes to the pale gold of the gown was white and full to the floor but upstairs the deep cleavage revealed full white large shapely breasts and her arms were round and firm and exquisitely turned.

    A very interesting entry in the Peter Chambers series.Peter Chambers is hanging around rich people trying to get some business with them. It never really works out for him but he keeps trying. He's in a triangle with a millionaire over a stage actress. This leads to all sorts of complications for Chambers, who spends most of the book trying to figure out what is going on.Pretty good.
