Book description
"She was such a beautiful blonde it was unfortunate, indeed, that she was dead when a handsome young Marine, just out of service, met her on a lane in Westchester County. But she had a younger sister, equally beautiful, and an invalid grandmother with an income tax in the upper brackets. Naturally, there was a doctor prescribing for grandma, a lawyer ministering to the needs of mammon, and, shortly, Captain Heimrich of the State Police investigating murder. The young Marine did not get the situation well in hand. Grandma forgot her script and stood up to die. Whodunit? You'll be surprised." From jacket blurb of J. B. Lippincott edition

"The lovely blonde lay dead--mutilated and bloody in a lonelyWestchester lane! Obviously this was the work of some sex-crazed fiend. At least, the family doctor said so...But if it were a sex crime, then young Elizabeth Monroe could not be guilty--even though she hated her dead sister's guts! No, the killer had to be a man. Kirkwood, for instance, who so desperately had craved teh murdered girl. Guy Ober, the nervous chauffeur, who took liberties with his pretty mistress. Or big Tim Gates, the ex-marine with the mental disturbance, who had danced with the victim before her death, had been seen coming out of the lane that hid her body--and who now was making unabashed love to her tempting younger sister..." From the Graphic Books pulp paperback edition
