Overview

A murder mystery story, plotted around the characters and situations found in a lawyer's office, is being planned by a lively young couple. Then, a murder is committed and fiction becomes grim fact. Jane and Dagobert, who proves to be engagingly uninhibited in his methods of detection, soon find a real baffler on their hands. And the deeper they probe into the affairs of the office staff, the more complex, sordid, and exciting the case becomes.

Persons in the Mystery:

JANE HAMISH, a pretty young executive in a law firm, is cheerfully nursing her fiancé through his latest hobby which is making her write a murder mystery inspired by his imaginings and peopled by characters on the staff at her office.

DAGOBERT BROWN, an engaging fugitive from gainful employment, is so completely absorbed in the thriller he is cooking up around the staff of Daniel Playfair and Son that he is mildly astonished when the wrong victim actually dies.

MRS. ROBJOHN, an elderly client in whose mental processes reason plays small part, is driving the law office crazy with her imaginary fears. A sinister— and constantly changing—they pursue Mrs. Robjohn day and night according to her stories.

MAJOR JIMMY STEWART, handsome, pompous, young junior partner, is always vividly aware of women as such. He has worked his romantic way through the office; now he is passionately keen on an heiress and her millions.

ROSEMARY PROCTOR, efficient, attractive chief clerk, who says she's 29, can't quite get over being tossed in the romantic discard by Jimmy.

SARAH SWINBURNE, typist, the youngest and prettiest girl in the office, lasted just two and a half lunches with Jimmy—too much sense of humor.

MR. PLAYFAIR, elderly senior partner, treats his staff like members of the family and sighs when work interferes with his crossword puzzles.

OATES, the office boy, is six feet tall, sophisticated and unsavory. He has several personalities and leads a double life, at least.

DOUGLAS ROBJOHN, Mrs. Robjohn's son and sole heir, lives in Ceylon but is due back soon. Mrs. Robjohn never mentions him—which is remarkable, since reticence is not her strong point.

SIRKORSKI, a concert pianist with a past mixed up with Mrs. Robjohn's, thinks he might have children somewhere because "these things happen."

BARBARA JENNINGS, Major Stewart's latest conquest, is an heiress. She is jealous of the many women in his life.
