A Sample

THE FLEETWOOD MANSIONS MYSTERY
By MAURICE B. DIX "Your testimony is that you recovered from the drug first, and dis-covered a dead man, two drugged friends, and a bridge-table at which you had never played. To pass on Mitchell comes round next, and you support his evidence. Next, Mr. Haynes comes to, and his evidence is doubly supported." The Chief Inspector paused and looked deliberately at Tommy Randall. " How if the authorities take the view-point, Mr. Randall, that you were not drugged at all, that you drugged the other two and shot Colonel Moore ? . . . Answer me that ! "
