From the back cover:

WHO had sent mobster Henry Heinlein the weird little voodoo doll neatly stabbed through the chest with a black-headed pin?

WHAT could Michael Shayne do to stop the overpowering fear in the man’s eyes and to prevent murder?

WHERE did the earthy mystic Madame Swoboda and her cryptic messages come from?

WHEN would the murderer strike out at his next unsuspecting victim?

WHY did people who were to old to play with dolls insist on such a deadly game?
