Bart Spicer Bibliography

Murder was damnable enough, thought Carney Wilde, but kidnapping was worse. Kidnapping was blackmail and murder combined— and too often the life at stake was an innocent child's. So when Wilde was summoned to trace the disappearance of a little girl in the Arizona desert, he was ready for trouble. The kidnapper, he realised, would be vicious and cleverly concealed. It might be the man standing beside you or someone in the same house with you. And one rash move, one slightest mistake, would mean the victim's death. Only by the aid of some desert Apache trackers and a chance remark in which Wilde found an unexpected significance did he bring the cruel suspense to its conclusion. Here is one of the fastest, most original stories from Bart Spicer's pen.
