When wealthy art collector Miriam Welles is crushed to death by her own Rolls Royce, the police call it a tragic accident.
But her lawyer Dade Cooley arrives on the scene in Los Angeles and quickly determines that, though the Rolls was empty, there was definitely a driving force behind Miriam’s untimely demise.
He takes on the role of detective with glee as the plot thickens.
Two more residents come to an unfortunate end, and Dade is convinced that murder is the cause of all these suspicious deaths.
When a special painting is stolen, the list of suspects grows until Dade discovers the unlikely perpetrator behind the killings.
Was it greed or love that killed the beauty?
‘Murder Mystery’ is a classic mystery story from a master story-teller.
Praise for ‘Murder Mystery’:
“California private-investigator novel… Cooley is a robustly real invention, and it is a pleasure to watch him (and his equally but differently intelligent wife) at work and, when they get the chance, at play.” The New Yorker
“There’s a new master behind this MURDER MYSTERY … and his name is Gene Thompson!” Cleveland Plain Dealer
Gene Thompson was a novelist and writer of radio and television shows. Along with Murder Mystery he was known for Lupe, about a Mexican boy involved with the occult. A native of San Francisco, he graduated from the University of California at Berkeley, after which he worked and studied in Europe for some time. Subsequently, he and his wife, also a writer, moved to Malibu with their four children and lived there for the next sixteen years. He died in his Los Angeles home of cancer in 2001.
