(From the publisher):
If someone hadn't called Asey Mayo a phony and bet fifty thousand dollars that he couldn't solve Aunt Eugenia's old grocery order, the Codfish Sherlock wouldn't have landed in the middle of this cussed murder mess. In the middle, too, of a very cold snow drift with someone taking pot shots at him!
The whole situation made Asey mad, madder than he'd been in years. So, armed with only a toy water pistol, and some shrewd Yankee suspicion, he set out to capture a killer and to unravel the most curious mystery he'd ever been up against.
