THE Philadelphia Murder Story concerns the astonishing case of Myron Kane, distinguished columnist and contributor to the Saturday Evening Post, in whose palatial offices he is found stabbed to death. It is as baffling a mystery as ever turned a magazine—and Philadelphia society—inside out. Colonel Primrose does a brilliant sleuthing job as usual; Mrs. Latham helps and hinders in her own inimitable fashion; and Sergeant Buck disapproves thoroughly of the whole business. There is a second murder, a romance, plentiful excitement and a great deal of interesting Philadelphia background in this grand story, in which real people under their real names play amusing and exciting roles.
