Description:

At least five people wished Gavin Dordress, the playwright, dead the night of his ill-starred party. It was that night Gail Garrett and Bea Townley quarreled openly for the leading role in his new play - which no one had read. The next morning he was found shot to death, a chessman imprinted on his forehead, and nearby a letter of farewell that sounded suspiciously like one of his stage characters speaking. The police called it suicide. But Cynthia Dordress and Amos Lee Mappin called it murder. For weeks suspense rode high. Then a new and amazing clue sped a seemingly hopeless hunt to a thrilling finish. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Footner, Hulbert

Author Image

Hulbert Footner (1879–1944) was a Canadian writer of non-fiction and detective fiction.

His most successful creation was the beautiful and brilliant Madame Rosika Storey and her plain assistant who explains the evolving solutions to her boss’ cases. His Madame Storey mysteries fit the flapping 1920s like the long lizard gloves that graced her arms and did well supporting his traveling family’s lifestyle. His Rosika Storey cases appeared in Argosy All-Story Weekly every year from 1922 through 1935.--Wikipedia.
