Wealthy industrialist P. L. Storrs has never approved of lady detectives, and he normally would not have made an exception of Theodolina "Dol" Bonner. But faced with a very delicate problem and surprisingly impressed, he hires her instantly. It seems that Storrs’ bird-witted wife has fallen under the spell of a smooth-talking religious charlatan, and now Storrs wants Dol to get the goods on him. But when the gorgeous gumshoe arrives at Storrs’ picturesque country estate, Birchhaven, to meet the scoundrel, she finds more than she bargained for – namely, the corpse of her client and a garden party teeming with suspects! This witty whodunit, brought dramatically to life by noted reader Judith West, was first published in 1937.

It's 1937. "Dol" Bonner, New York private eye, searches for the identity of the killer who works in gloves and stealthily haunts the gardens of the rich. Judith West must stay in character while creating accents for the rich and eccentric. She doggedly follows the narrative as Bonner follows every minute clue and nuance of the murder, seeking to uncover whoever would perpetrate such a crime. A true 1930s mystery.
