Virgil Markham


Warden George Peters is almost too young to be warden of Franklin Penitentiary but he's been around the block a time or two. But when convict Frank Holburn asks a favor of him right before he is to be executed, the warden gets involved in a terrifying ordeal that will take him far away from the prison and into the mean streets where a badge means nothing. He's after a young woman who wrote love notes to the master criminal and holds the key to a secret that may blow the lid off of some serious careers, not to mention a treasure buried near a "doll-house" built for the girl. This 1932 novel will grab you from the first page and keep you gasping for breath. THE DEVIL DRIVES is the first of several Virgil Markham mysteries to be republished by Ramble house.
