Hello!

According to online sources, this old Gold Key issue - number 48 - includes a story called "the evil that men do, part 2"

48 Murder on the Enterprise: (w: Arnold Drake & Doug Drexler, a: Alden McWilliams)
 Part 1: The Sweet Smell of Evil / Part 2: The Evil That Men Do

@Get Marwood & I, I followed your link from the appreciation thread to this. I purchased a few longboxes this weekend full of assorted books and I thought that cover looked familiar. I checked the book and you are correct, the book in question is Star Trek 48. My copy was published by Whitman though, not Gold Key. I'm sure the different publisher makes a difference in the two books somehow, but I haven't started on that fact hunt yet.

I'm far from expert on the situation, but my understanding is that Whitman logos indicate they were sold in multipacks while Gold Key books were sold individually.

I think they were two divisions of the same company.

Cheers guys! I wonder if @Taramccurry1984 ever dialled back in...
