Death of Cecilia

Death of Cecilia

First published in 1952, Death of Cecilia begins with a telephone conversation, started with a conventional greeting, but to Glenn Bowman the voice seemed to carry a note of cold menace. It went on to warn him not to take a personal interest in a certain dead woman unless he wanted a lethal dose of lead poisoning.

This was a challenge no self-respecting crime investigator could ignore.
