THE CASE OF THE
Helmon Hobersteed, Chief of Homicide, is having a bad day. His wife told him he was getting on in years and a young girl had just called him an “old man”. Then he gets a call about the apparent death of a beautiful woman in a steam cabinet who has a picture of Helmon taped on her wall—like a pin-up! But when Hobersteed goes to investigate the death of someone who obviously idolized him, he finds her ravishing head sticking out the top of the cabinet and her painted toes below—but gets the shock of his life when he opens the cabinet. No body! It just isn’t Helmon’s day. Instead, it’s a novel only Harry Stephen Keeler could have written!
