VINCENT STARRETT, well-known mystery story writer and one of the country's outstanding Sherlock Holmes experts, has again written one of the expertly plotted, expertly told stories for which he is internationally famous. When, in Chicago, a New York banker, under an assumed name, is found dead from morphine poisoning in a hotel room, registered in another man's name, it seems at first glance to be an obvious case of murder. But when Riley Blackwood, young dramatic critic, close friend of the owner of the hotel, and specialist in crime, happens on the scene, he soon discovers that it is a crime unprecedented in ingenuity and complexity.
