Paperback. A blue-blooded Boston publishing heir is found dead in his office at Boston's commercial wharf. His death is ruled suicide. But is it? A Waltham housewife is found shot to death in her suburban home. A suicide note is found. But could she have shot herself in the back of the head? A handsome young man disappears in another Boston suburb. His mummified body is found months later. Who stood to profit from his death? These 3 seemingly unrelated deaths shocked a tightly knit New England community. There was one common thread, however - James Blaikie, a pudgy swindler, con man and robber in the guise of a mild-mannered insurance agent, who had chosen a final bloody solution to his financial problems. This is the harrowing true crime story of treachery and greed, forgery, superb police work - and of a chilling and complex murder case that tested the boundaries of the criminal-justice system. Illus. 381pp. mass market p/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. V. lightly browned pp. o/w Nr. F. with no creasing to covers.
