The Night The Gods Smiled

Author: Eric Wright
0 (0 Votes)
It is a particularly puzzling murder case that Inspector Charlie Salter of the Metropolitan Toronto Police is assigned to solve: Professor David Summers has been found dead in his Montreal hotel room while attending a conference. The only tangible clues are a lipstick-marked glass and the whisky bottle that was used to crush Summer's skull - clues so banal that they present a challenge in themselves.

This is #1 in Inspector Charlie Salter Series.
