A childhood nemesis. A threat seemingly from beyond the grave. Murder by Monday....
A mysterious letter sends Carl Brooke and Rutherford Nordlinger off to the aid of a man who, accused of murder, is now threatened by the man he is said to have killed.
"Well, hello there," I said with some relief. "I am so very glad it is you."
"Mr. Brooke," Nordlinger said, smiling, "By the handle of the revolver I see coming out of your pocket, it seems you were expecting the devil instead."
"Very close." I motioned for him to enter. "Very close, indeed." I headed to the bureau, returning the weapon to its proper place. "Do come in and have a seat."
