The Last Vanity | [Hartley Howard]

The Last Vanity

Edwin Newsome was pretty worried about his brother's health - so worried that he hired Glenn Bowman to work his way into Harold Newsome's household to do some unofficial sleuthing. Harold was suffering from an obscure sickness, and though he's recently married a pretty girl much younger than him, Edwin didn't think it was just blonde fever! In fact, he suspects that the lovely Moira is taking a short-cut to wealthy widowhood by putting poison in her husband's food.

Publisher's Summary

Edwin Newsome was pretty worried about his brother's health - so worried that he hired Glenn Bowman to work his way into Harold Newsome's household to do some unofficial sleuthing. Harold was suffering from an obscure sickness, and though he's recently married a pretty girl much younger than him, Edwin didn't think it was just blonde fever!

In fact, he suspects that the lovely Moira is taking a short-cut to wealthy widowhood by putting poison in her husband's food. Bowman's first step forward brings him up against a corpse, and even he can't make a dead man talk.

This is only the beginning of a dramatic case that takes Bowman down a dark and slippery road to a startling dénouement. There are some mysterious undercurrents beneath the surface involving family and staff alike, leading to a conclusion much more sinister than a scheming wife after her husband's money...
