"'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
