Dangerous corner by Philip E Rosen ( Visual )
5 editions published between 1934 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When publisher Robert Chatfield discovers on his wedding anniversary that a valuable bond is missing from the company safe, suspicion is cast among the four partners: Robert, his brother Martin, his brother-in-law Gordon and Charles Stanton. That weekend, Charles calls on Martin and finds him dead from a bullet wound. After an exhaustive inquest, a jury declares Martin's death a suicide, and Robert and the others assume that guilt over the bond theft was the motive. Many months later, however, during an after-dinner discussion at Robert's country home, Robert begins to question his wife Freda and Ann, an assistant at the company, about the last time they saw Martin alive. Surprisingly, their answers differ significantly from their inquest statements, and curious to know what the women are hiding, Robert pursues his inquiries with vigor. Finally, Freda confesses that she had been in love with Martin, and Ann admits to her long-standing, unspoken adoration of Robert and her fear that he, not Martin, had stolen the bond. Although Robert is sympathetic to his wife's unfulfilled love, he denies the theft and demands that Charles, who had encouraged the rumor, explain himself. Charles casually admits to stealing the bond, which causes Robert to imply that Charles indirectly drove Martin to suicide because he believed that Robert was guilty. At this point, Ann confesses to having accidentally shot Martin herself, recounting a story of Martin's strange, drug-induced taunting and game-playing with a gun. Charles, who has loved Ann for years, then confesses that he knew all along about her participation in the crime, and Betty, Gordon's wife, states that not only is she miserable in her seemingly blissful marriage, but is suffering from an unrequited love for Charles, who reveals that he stole the bond to help her pay back a gambling debt. His romantic delusions about Betty shattered, Robert leaves the room and shoots himself. Thus the first version of the story ends. In a second ending, which begins immediately after the first, the after-dinner conversation starts again, but this time, Charles proposes and is accepted by Ann, and Robert asks no questions, thus steering clear of the "dangerous corner."
