Back when I was buying all of these books for their covers, quite a few authors kept popping up, and Erle Stanley Gardner was one of them. From what I can gather he was a detective story writer trying to hit on that winning formula of sleaze, mystery and gin. Last week he gave us that big golden boot; this week, well, I’m sure the scene depicted is relevant to the book not that I can work out how by reading the back cover. The title is the next mystery. How do cows and music figure into this? Maybe I should have read this book.
