Erle Stanley Gardner

SYNOPSIS
The little clergyman had died peacefully in bed in the Madison Hotel. An overdose of sleeping tablets ! "Now listen, Doug, this is just a natural death, see ?" the hotel proprietor said anxiously. But Douglas Selby, District Attorney, just elected, suspected it was more than that, and soon knew definitely something was wrong. So Doug found himself faced not only with a wily murderer, but with virulence from a hostile Press, reluctant witnesses, and a film star unwilling to explain why she was on the spot. The fighting D.A. at last finds out, through methods entirely different from the author's famous Perry Mason stories. But the Gardner technique, the pace and excitement are present at every turn of Selby's clever and relentless probing.
