George Bagby has always appreciated New York City as a place in which a person can live for years without ever knowing his nearest neighbour.
But not every New Yorker had 'a girl next door' like Sabra, a goofy kid whose unwashed Beatnik friends seemed to spurn everything - soap, bourgeois morals, privacy - everything, that is, except Sabra's unlimited supply of cash. Suddenly Sabra, the 'goose that laid the golden eggs' was gone...real gone. And that was when George Bagby, trying to clarify his relationship with Sabra to the pressm and to his friends at Police Headquarters, decided Sabra had been far less trouble when she was alive.
THE REAL GONE GOOSE is an exciting mystery story that is unusual in that it has the background to murder, the weird and unrealistic world of the 'Beatnik Generation'.
