Book of the Month
The Listening Walls
By Margaret Millar
Wilma Wyatt died when she hit the pavement - on that, and on nothing else, the eyewitnesses agree. Now her body lies lifeless in the street outside her Mexico City hotel, but a story of blackmail, missing persons and murder, stretching all the way to San Francisco, is only just the beginning.
Back in California, private detective Elmer Dodd looks for answers, but this is a mystery that grows more twisted with every turn, and blood will be spilled again before he gets to the truth.
A classic from a master.
