(From the publisher):
Donald Lam, private investigator, and Elsie Brand, his secretary, were enjoying a coffee break (with the snorting permission of his partner Bertha Cool) when the man appeared. He seemed aimless until he spotted Donald—but men of such obvious affluence are seldom, if ever, aimless...
