Four stories, four protagonists, four different crimes. Each hero had his own slant on fighting crime. There are Dudley Bell, Bud Norman, Kayo Macray, and Ben Harper. Follow their exploits as only the great Erle Stanley Gardner could record for posterity. We have gathered them all together in this book:
The kiss of Death is a cold one--yet it has been known to break the silence of love-sealed lips when crime is on the loose.

The long sigh of its bite was the only clue to the whispering death. Not even the puppets of the Master could forget that murder is no man's property.

False faces, he lifted them with knuckles, this ex-pug who went berserk in a rogues' gallery of prize specimens--live specimens who spat lead.

Where other men try to remember, he tried to forget. This is the time he did.
