1911. One of the Craig Kennedy Series. The book begins: Kennedy's suitcase was lying open on the bed, and he was literally throwing things into it from his chiffonier, as I entered after a hurried trip uptown from the Star office in response to an urgent message from him. Come, Walter, he cried, hastily stuffing in a package of clean laundry without taking off the wrapping-paper, I've got your suitcase out. Pack up whatever you can in five minutes. We must take the six o'clock train for Danbridge. I did not wait to hear any more. The mere mention of the name of the quaint and quiet little Connecticut town was sufficient. For Danbridge was on everybody's lips at that time. It was the scene of the new famous Danbridge poisoning case-a brutal case in which the pretty little actress, Vera Lytton, had been the victim.
