The leader of a reformist political movement to root out political corruption in the city is murdered, and the local PD is mightily confused when not just one (the victim's beautiful ward), not just two (an elderly loon who for years has been accusing the victim of swindling him) but three (the fiance of the beautiful ward, op cit) people turn themselves in as the killer. Police Commissioner Hall atypically calls in PI David Carroll to solve the mystery, which of course the latter does.

The first

This book was in the latest issue of High Adventure, which reprints pulp fiction, and I had a good time with it. One of the funniest things is that the Police Chief turns over a high interest murder investigation to a private investigator. Yeah, that happens. The beginning is great with the first three chapters ending with a different person coming in and confessing. There are lot of suspects and the story keeps going and it is surprising. The writing is pulp fiction but the story just moves.
