A Henry Gamadge Mystery., originally published in 1942.
"The death of Curtis Gregson had left his wife very rich. It had also left her marked in the public's mind as 'the woman who poisoned her husband.' A jury had acquitted her, of course. But the suspicion remained. Now she wanted Gamadge to clear her name -- and to keep her alive. For some very nasty anonymous notes to Mrs. Gregson had been followed by several equally nasty, and nearly fatal 'accidents.' . . . Gamadge knew he was after a killer who was both very dangerous . . . and dangerously mad."; 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall
