A classic Phoebe Atwood Taylor mystery.
Something must have scared the wits out of Jane Lennox to make her run right in front of Asey Mayo in his brand new Porter Sixteen. Could that something have been the sight of a corpse? And could it have been the body of politically ambitious Henry Slocum? The answer would have to wait, for the corpse in the old salt loft had vanished from sight.
This one would prove to be a real challenge for the Codfish Sherlock as further sinister and hilarious developments upset the normally tranquil Quashnet Township.
The Cape Cod flash again puts the bee on the right guy when he ruins his brand new Porter to save a frightened girl, gets caught up with a disappearing body, a political campaign, local feuds, cousin, Syl's genius for finding things, a disrupted family, another body and some undercover finagling. Fun for the fans. (Kirkus Reviews)
