Connie Conine | 40 comments I read this in the 1970s. it might have been a Readers digest condensed book, if so then it could have been published much earlier. Spoilers: turned out that the disabled brother was jealous of the other brother and tried to frame him. there was an archery scene where one brother almost shot the other one on purpose. the male detective finally figured it out.

Connie Conine | 40 comments You guys are awesome! The cover even has the wheelchair bound brother holding a bow, with a target background. I had no idea how to find this.

Connie Conine | 40 comments I forgot that it was a series of murders. I remember reading this at my grandparents' house when I was about 13. They had stacks of volumes of condensed books.

Glad you found your book, Connie. I moved your request to a Solved folder by clicking the small "edit" link beside your topic header on the desktop website (note: this link doesn't appear on the mobile app).
