Marty Bowman
Created by Al Fray; pseudonym of Ralph Salaway (1913-1991)

"In one jump, Marty Bowman made it from lifeguard to bodyguard-- and what a body! Her name was Kate. She hired him as her protector and/or playmate. She took him to a luxurious desert hideaway. All of which was fine with Marty--until his lucky silver dollar turned up in the fingers of a corpse."

Hardboiled So Cal lifeguard MARTY BOWMAN is hired as a bodyguard by Boreland Gregory, who runs a big time Hollywood private eye agency. The plan is for Marty to pose as pretty young thing Kate Weston's escort for a week end stay at a swanky Mojave desert resort .

On the one hand, he gets to rub shoulders with other nifty babes like Sandra and Elsa. Then again, he also has to deal with the likes of dangerous dudeslike Dr Cronk, and deal with a murder frame. Thm someone hies, to frame him for mtsdet . Like the cover blurb of this Graphic Mystery PBO says, "Nice work -- If it doesn't kill you!"
