John Stephen Strange

SYNOPSIS
WHEN Barney Gantt, news photographer and detective extraordinary, vowed to get a picture of millionaire Jesse Jordan even if he had to shoot him first and prop him against a tree, he was unaware that Fate would save him that trouble. It was not until he had made his way through an unguarded gate into the Long Island estate and found Jordan's dead body slumped on the bench behind the fountain, that he realised that Lady Luck had again played his hand for him. Instead of the photograph of a living malefactor of great wealth, Barney came back with a picture of the victim of a headline-making murder, one that was to fill columns of newsprint for weeks, and provide the most devious and engrossing case that had ever taxed his shrewd, ingenious wits.
