Who hanged the host?
It could have been the “mystic” he’d threatened to expose…
It could have been the scientist who wanted two million dollars from him…
It could have been the reporter who’d threatened to kill him…

Here’s Rex Stout’s most unusual detective – lovely to look at and hard as nails – in a mystery which is “sophisticated – surprising – ingenious” New York Times

“Now you tell me why. You have until I’ve counted twenty, then I will shoot you. One . . .”
Dol Bonner’s methods were unorthodox – it’s certainly unusual to use a pistol as a lie detector – but they had led her through a tangle of false clues and well hidden motives to a showdown with the murderer. The case was closed. . . .
But who was moving behind her on silent feet?
