(From the publisher):
"You're a detective, I gather." She looked at his card and read it: "Gerard Secret Service. John Church, manager, San Francisco office."
"I'm looking for Mira Whitney," Church said.
"What's the poor soul done now?" Mrs. Taliaferro whispered.
"Well," Church said,"in the first place she seems to have disappeared. In the second place she disappeared with a diamond and emerald ring and a Jaguar belonging to my client."
"I don't think it will do any good to look for her," Mrs Taliaferro shook her lovely head from side to side. "She disappeared before and people have looked for her in vain. She's ill, Mr. Church. She belongs in a sanatorium. Each time I hear of her, she has done something worse and more unforgivable."
"Just about all," Mrs. Taliaferro said slowly, "that is left for Mira is MURDER..."
