Potted plant horror: The Blue Geranium
Today’s book of the day is The Blue Geranium by Dolan Birkley – a wonderful piece of (rather tongue-in-cheek) mystery from 1944. Look at the cover blurb – “Death in a green hat. Chilling horror–and a potted plant.” I wish I had written that. What a bargain at 25 cents!
Dolan Birkley is a pen name for Dolores Hitchens (1907–1973).
She also wrote as D. B. Olsen and Noel Burke. Apparently, she authored railway-themed mysteries, westerns and mysteries involving a spinster called Rachel Murdock.
