1916. One of the Craig Kennedy Series. The book begins: Hello, Jameson, is Kennedy in? I glanced up from the evening papers to encounter the square-jawed, alert face of District Attorney Carton in the doorway of our apartment. How do you do Judge? I exclaimed. No, but I expect him any second now. Won't you sit down? The District Attorney dropped, rather wearily I thought, into a chair and looked at this watch.

Dorgan was the political boss of the city at that time, apparently entrenched, with an organization that seemed impregnable. I knew him as a big, bullnecked fellow, taciturn to the point of surliness, owing his influence to his ability to "deliver the goods" in the shape of graft of all sorts, the archenemy of Carton, a type of politician who now is rapidly passing.
