Publication: The Dial Press, 1979, New York
First edition. Author's first book. Fine in dust jacket. A John Marshall Tanner mystery in which the one-time lawyer turned investigator is hired to find out whether Mrs. Nelson's husband is having an affair. If so, under no circumstance are the facts to be documented. They must be covered up to protect him from scandal and blackmail ... his reputation as a leading consumer advocate must remain untarnished. A decades-old unsolved murder, an adopted daughter's search for her biological parents, and intervention by organized criminals all complicate Tannner's investigation.
