Overview

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! 

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A religious charlatan has smooth-talked his way into the life of the wife of wealthy industrialist P.L. Storrs in 1937 New York City. Storrs decides he needs the services of a private investigator, so he hires the charming Theodolina "Dol" Bonner, even though he doesn't approve of female detectives. Dol says she doesn't like men but agrees to work for the tycoon. Dol soon finds she must deal with the death of her client and a literal garden party of suspects. The Hand in the Glove features a host of eccentric characters and a sophisticated sleuth. Judith West provides a clear reading that breathes life into the tale. Recommended.-Denise A.
