Publisher's Summary

It all began when pretty Gladys Doyle lost her way and was forced to spend the night in a remote cabin. The next morning she discovered her handsome host gone and a stranger in his place - dead as the proverbial herring.

There follows a courtroom scene in the best Perry Mason tradition, with a most reticent group of witnesses: a lady author whose realistic novel is a bit too true to life; Edgar Carlisle, equally talented at telling stories; Richard Gilman, an old hand at the disappearing act; and a smart, sharp operator never at a loss for clever plots.

Action and suspense are at their height and the adroit Mason at his legal best in this superb mystery.
