Excerpt: "There was nothing to indicate anything unusual that Tuesday morning in the life of Wade Forsythe II, ex-lieutenant of Marines in the late if not the last war and now member of the bar. There was no poetry in his soul, no particular love in his heart. There was, on the contrary, a look of concentrated hatred in his good-looking face as he sat down at his desk and glared at the red-bound book which was the Revenue Act of 1951. His secretary, Miss Potter, accustomed to the Ides of March, was unperturbed." Contents: The Frightened Wife If Only It Were Yesterday The Scandal Murder and the South Wind The Burned Chair
