Lucky devil
ISBN: 0060128542

Harper & Row. 1978

From the cover: "KIRKUS REVIEWS says of LUCKY DEVIL: "Even if you don't know your Dow from your Jones, you'll tag along and watch the pieces fit when an elderly Jewish widow turns up at the morgue, having been pushed off a subway platform....In addition to the insider market stuff and tersely arranged flares of violence, Maling offers a handful of vulnerably memorable characters, not the least of which is Brock himself, the Swinging Bachelor Who Has Everything But maybe Nothing After All. Lean, sharp, funny, fast...." And PUBLISHERS WEEKLY says: "Maling's specialty is the suspense novel with a strong and interesting business background....The financial manipulations, the murky hidden truths are fascinating to watch as they slowly but inexorable come to the surface and Brock stalks a killer out West" This fast, exciting story is probably the best and most amazing of all Arthur Maling's novels--and should delight his many present admirers and win him many more.

When the case of the disappearing lover and the purloined jewels turns to murder, Bix is drawn into the world of drug smuggling and international finance, as the trail leads from Chicago to Tucson and across the ocean to Zurich, Switzerland. Then, just as Bix is about to close in on the elusive truth, he finds that the killer is about to close in on him...
