Private Detective Ed London is summoned by his creepy brother-in-law Dr. Jack Enright to an apartment on East 51 Street. Jack is not there, but the body of a dead girl is. Jack told Ed he was having an affair with the girl, but he swore to Ed he didn't kill her. Even though Jack admitted he was cheating on Ed's sister Kaye, Ed tries to help Jack stay out of jail by moving the body out of the apartment, which was where Jack was keeping the chick for their trysts, and dumping it in Central Park. Not a good move, Ed. Soon people are looking to kill Ed, while his slimy brother-in-law basically crawls into a simpering little ball of mush.
Coward's Kiss is one of Block's earliest works, but all Block fan's will love his famed roller- coaster style, where no one is whom they seem to be, and surprise ending are always in store for the reader.
Coward's Kiss is a one-night read. But I guarantee you you'll get bang for your buck, if you buy this book.
