DEATH SHALL OVERCOME: A Rollicking good adventure about Wall Street promoting the first Black partner in a distinguished brokerage firm. Ed Parry is a Yale Summa graduate, Rhode Scholar, and rich in his own right. Emma Lathen at her best with John Putnam Thatcher solving the mystery with insight and wit. MURDER AGAINST THE GRAIN: $985,000 has been stolen from the Sloan in a letter of credit situation with forged documents; John Putnam Thatcher gets involved to save the Sloan the money and finds the murders in the process. Great fun with the Soviets, Americans, and others acting up. A STITCH IN TIME: A rich childless widower gets his affairs in order; makes the Sloan his executor; and tries to kill himself but fails. 4 days later he dies in the Southport hospital due to malpractice it would appear. This soon evolves into murder and more. John Putnam Thatcher solves the mystery on behalf of the Sloan after much incisive and witty talk, typical of Emma Lathen's deft writing.
