One year after he suffered his first heart attack, author Ed Lacy published Bugged For Murder (1961) about a private eye, Billy Wallace, who has a bad ticker ticker himself. Resigned to his fate, he becomes a couch potato.
Author Lacy (actually Leonard S. Zinberg) is best known for creating the ground-breaking African-American private eye Toussaint Moore, but he's also responsible for some other fine hard-boiled detectives, including as Hal Darling, Barney Harris, John O'Hara, Matt Ranzino, Lee Hayes and William Wallace.
