The Uncomplaining Corpses, by Brett Halliday (Dell, 1958). Over an almost 40-year career, Halliday (aka Davis Dresser) penned more than 60 novels about red-headed Miami private eye Michael Shayne. The Uncomplaining Corpse was the third of those, following Dividend on Death (1939) and The Private Practice of Michael Shayne (1940). An earlier version of The Uncomplaining Corpses, with cover art by Robert Stanley, can be enjoyed here.
