Description:

The Rimley Rendezvous was the kind of back-street bistro where a tired businessman could drop in for a pick-up, no questions asked. Deep carpets and subdued lights gave the place an air of clandestine class. And solicitous waiters catered to the customer's every whim. All these comforts added up to a steep cover charge, especially since blackmail figured as the major part of the tab. It was a very lucrative business... until a murderer cut into the profits... and left his ax in Donald Lam's car. The team of Cool and Lam are at their fast-talking, fast-moving best in this tough tale of suicide, blackmail and murder.

Number 9 in the Cool & Lam series. After a book with Donald in the military for WW2, he returns to take control of the agency. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Gardner, Erle Stanley

Erle Stanley Gardner (1889-1970) was an American crime novelist. He was trained as a lawyer and served as a defence lawyer for many years, achieving much notoriety for his ingenious defence strategies. He wrote hundreds of novels and short stories in the crime genre which he completed by employing several assistants who wrote down his verbal dictation. His best known work is about his character, Perry Mason, a lawyer-sleuth who solves crimes with his faithful secretary Delia Street. The novels were serialized in a successful television series which ran for 9 seasons from 1957-1966. (Chambers Biographical Dictionary)
