Dust jacket by Gavin L. O'Keefe

THE TRAP

 Sheriff Lafe Whitecotton has a problem: sleepwalking Whisperwell Jenkins has stolen and burned some important evidence—as well as $500 in cold cash!—from his office and now everyone blames him for just about everything. Throw in a mysterious letter that claims that a book called THE CHINESE CHARACTER holds the clue to a murder and a doddering old detective named Tuddleton Trotter and you have the makings of one of the goldangdest Keeler novels that never made it to print—until now. How Lafe and Tuddleton band together to solve this case is a tale only webworking Harry Stephen Keeler could have devised.
