A SPY HUNT TURNS INTO A CASE OF MURDER
The mysterious man with a limp and two harlequin Great Danes seems just what the doctor ordered for daffy Dagobert Brown, who is living through a "Spy Period" to help his wife write her next mystery novel.
But murder intervenes to write the story for her, and to take the frivolous pair through as grim an adventure as they are likely to encounter.
Dagobert is drawn to the corpse like a pin to a magnet. Just because nobody asks him to, he elbows his way through a mass of conflicting motivations with his own brand of shocking subtlety, and pins down human passion with his patented unemotional judo.
This time the murderer almost gets away, but as usual Dagobertand the readerhave the last laugh.
