Detective Gordon Muldrew is called to the prestigious Wanderers' Club in NYC because of a murder just inside the doors to the club. "The girl, they decided, was about twenty-four. She was beautiful, but with a beauty soiled and hardened by a make-up carefully but too liberally applied. Her clothes were expensive and becoming, and her hands were soft and white, with well-manicured nails." Miss Luscombe is a most mysterious person and every member at the club is a suspect. This fast paced search proves fatal for some and 'Tiger Lillie', ace reporter for The Star cannot keep up with all the action. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Amy, William Lacey

William Lacey Amy (1877-1962), "Luke Allan", was a Canadian journalist and writer of western and mystery fiction. He was born in Sydenham, Ontario. A journalist by training he worked for the Medicine Hat Times in 1905 where he worked at reporting, before becoming its editor and later its owner. During his time at the paper he learned the writing profession and he wrote his first short story which appeared in the Canadian Magazine in 1911. The story, "Blue Pete, the Sentimental Half Breed" formed the basis for the series of novels which he would contribute to over the next 45 years. In the 1930s, he began writing novels sometimes two per year. At this time he began publishing under the pseudonym Luke Allan. He published about 20 novels in the Blue Pete series which were set in western Canada. He portrayed the North West Mounted Police as a powerful force limiting crime. Thus his novels centred more on mystery themes rather than banditry. He also wrote seven novels with a detective protagonist, Gordon Mildrew. (The Life and Opinions of William Lacey Amy)
