Kent Murdock is a newspaper photographer, a button pusher. He is good at what he does because he is the kind of guy that gets into places and get photos the others don't. This time is no different...or is it?

While showering and thinking about the strange people he saw at the party just upstairs from his apartment, he finds he is joined by a gorgeous girl who steps into his shower! She is the one he had his eye on at the party but was cold to his advances. Still in the dress she wore earlier, she whispers "Turn the water on!' just before he hears the police at his front door.

This is his introduction to a sensational and puzzling murder of a famous criminal lawyer who had hosted the party. Underworld characters and society types are among the suspects along with Murdock's ex, who he is trying to get a divorce from.

How these people all inter-relate is interesting. Set in the 1930s, there is atmosphere and action.

George Harmon Coxe (1901 - 1984) started as a newspaper man and also wrote his share of pulp fiction. He also had two of his books made into movies and one of his series became a radio show that ran into the 1940s. He has a total of 63 novels to his credit. A Goodread to me... ( )

The first of the Murdock books about a tough news photographer in Boston (later in the Caribbean) --Murdock attends a party to celebrate an expensive lawyer's success in getting a dubious character acquitted of murder, and then later the lawyer is killed. Murdock is breaking up with his wife (who was at the party), and the lawyer's wife and to beak up with him, and an attractive young woman hides with Murdock in his shower --altogether a complex opening.
