When New York's most powerful criminal gang plans to get control of the largest city bank, Dave Westover, a clerk, found himself inextricably involved in the maelstrom of events. First, lovely Paula Wrenn's appeal for help sent him riding around New York in a taxicab with a dead man at his feet; then, accused of two more murders, he spent days and nights avoiding both the police and the underworld, his face on the front page of every paper, his life constantly in danger. Checked at almost every turn, he managed to get enough evidence to convict the man whose unscrupulous use of his power was threatening the safety of the city's banks--the man responsible for scores of hitherto unsolved murders. It is a book packed with thrills--one it is impossible to lay aside. Mr. Footner follows up his two recent successful mysteries with a third, equally vigorous and with all the deft characterization and vein of humor Footner readers have come to delight in.--intro.

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.
