    For the firm of Carpenter and Quincannon, Professional Detective Services, stopping extortionists is not only grand, but excitingly lucrative.When a pleasant afternoon"s bicycling through Golden Gate Park with a friend ends with the revelation of threatening letters, followed by a gunshot in a mansion garden, Sabina Carpenter knows this is a case that demands her immediate and undivided attention.The questions her partner John Quincannon has to unravel are not difficult: Wrixton, a wealthy banker, has met his extortionist"s first demand, but the order to pay another $5,000 is too much to face. The banker"s real problem is something he doesn"t want to reveal. That was fine with the detective, and when he was informed that some private letters were involved and Wrixton absolutely needed them back, there was nothing more Quincannon needed in the way of background. As with so many of San Francisco"s elite, the bedroom doors never seemed to stay shut.That was the easy part; far more difficult was the matter of the dead courier, murdered most foully in a locked room within a locked room, creating a trail that will take John Quincannon through most of San Francisco"s less savory places and end with a riverboat trip that is anything but a relaxing cruise.

    The banker? While she had always supported the suffrage movement, she had been kept too busy to take as active a role as she would have liked. The story does have a bit of a slow start, so it took a little bit more reading to get into the story. This one finds Quincannon up north handily solving a gold theft the railway can't figure out.

    Even if he's guilty, he would simply deny it. She'd be even less likely to confide in you, a relative stranger. This prompted Sabina to ask, "Amity, is something troubling you? Meanwhile the government asks Quincannon to find who is back in the business of making their own hundred dollar bills as a favor to his old boss at the treasury.

    I wonder who writes which part?

That was fine with the detective, and when he was informed that some private letters were involved and Wrixton absolutely needed them back, there was nothing more Quincannon needed in the way of background. Early San Francisco private investigators team up to share cases and more.

The dangerous ladies affair book

I could drop by your house while you're away —" "I have a better idea," Amity said. Excerpted by permission of Tom Doherty Associates. Riding beside her now, Amity slowed, raised a hand to indicate a rest stop, and veered off the path as they neared one of the many animal habitats that dotted the park, this one of bison, deer, and elk.

But he's been unpleasant and insulting when our paths have crossed. All rights reserved. Something — a name, a dispute, an incident she's afraid or unwilling to reveal? On this crisp spring day the park was alive with the colors and motion of the cycling mania that was sweeping not only the city but also, from all reports, the rest of the country.

The bloomers of the women cyclists billowed out in the wind off the nearby Pacific Ocean — flowing fabrics tight at the waist, cinched in at the knee, and adorned with varicolored flowers, stripes, and checks.

It can only be bad news, and it is: Sharon's father, Elwood, has been the victim of a vicious, racially motivated attack. That was the easy part; far more difficult was the matter of the dead courier, murdered most foully in a locked room within a locked room, creating a trail that will take John Quincannon through most of San Francisco's less savory places and end with a riverboat trip that is anything but a relaxing cruise.

John is sent on a quest to retrieve money from an extortionist who is pestering a wealthy bank in the city. You have trespassed upon the Lord's word. When Amity added, "Please say yes. The banker's real problem is something he doesn't want to reveal.

And of something else, too, perhaps. Or should I be concerned?
