Summary (From the publisher):

Douglas Selby, the ambitious young District Attorney of the territory around Madison City, had up before him a young man guilty of embezzling a comparatively small sum of money which he had spent gambling. Selby could have locked him up--and perhaps ruined his life. But he wanted to find the how and the why of this otherwise law-abiding young man's gambling. Selby's investigations led him to a hit-and-run motor accident, to blackmail, and to the doorstop of DeWitt Stapleton, the local big-wig, who ran things in that part of the country by and for himself. How the District Attorney solved the hit-and-run killing, scotched the blackmailers and broke the political stranglehold makes a fine story of young Selby, who is already running strong as a rival in favour to the great Perry Mason himself.
