11 Gardner, Erle Stanley The Clue of the Forgotten Murder
New York Pocket Books 1950 Mass Market Paperback Good+ 


Spine slanted/ reading crease, some edgewear. Text yellowing, but clean and unmarked.

"When a very respectable man, a candidate for councilman on a reform ticket in fact, is picked up drunk as a hoot-owl and involved with a girl hitch-hiker, there are apt to be headlines. The Blade printed them in large, black type. That led to a libel suit and a secret investigation by a Blade reporter. At least it was supposed to be secret. But apparently the wrong person or persons unknown got wind of it, because the reporter soon became a corpse lying in a vacant lot. Sidney Griff, the criminologist, teamed with the Blade's publisher to track down missing girls, phony checks, and finally a long forgotten murder. The publisher threw his weight around with muscular abandon. Griff played human checkers with suspects, forcing them to move and reveal themselves. Between them, they wound up the case with a blast of gunfire and a shocking discovery."; 16mo - over 5" - 6" tall

"'A guy in one of the cabins is ready for a funeral.' District Attorney Doug Selby slammed down the receiver and ten minutes later was at the Keystone Auto Camp. 'Where is he?' Selby asked. Sheriff Brandon moved the dresser. The corpse was slumped down in a grotesque sitting position. In his right hand he held a revolver and in his left a long pin such as florists give with corsages. The clues indicated the Palm Thatch, a local roadhouse, as the starting point in the investigation. There Selby ran into Mr. Big of Madison City who told him, 'Lay Off!' Bit the D.A. ignores the warning and uncovers a set-up loaded with explosive action."; 16mo - over 5" - 6" tall
