"On her twenty-first birthday Virginia Wilkins Forester stood to inherit three million dollars. But she was still only seventeen when her sudden and unexplained disappearance alerted police up and down the whole California coast. In the Shady Dell Trailer Park, located between San Francisco and Los Angeles, a routine check from the local sheriff provoked avid speculation among the varied and colorful occupants, their imaginations considerably stimulated by the prospect of collecting a ten-thousand-dollar reward. ... But one woman, dreaming of a prosperous future, failed to take into account her own shady past. It was she who introduced death into the peaceful trailer camp, and only then did the police discover one resident who knew a vital secret -- the murdered woman had found the missing heiress."--Page [3]

"Soon after the body was found on the sidewalk outside the Grady home [in San Francisco] there was no escaping the fact that one of the family had committed murder.

As the police investigation pressed closer, the awful realization grew in each member of the family that one of them must pay for the crime for which they all may have been indirectly responsible."--Page [3]

"Vivian Haines started on a week-end holiday with the full intention of committing murder, but because she was an amateur her plans were necessarily nebulous. One of the group at her sister's lodge was her intended victim, bu the largest element of suspense in this story is which one and from what motive. Vivian's wealthy aunt, her hedonistic sister, the sister's current inamorata, Vivian's own fiancé, the aunt's chauffeur, and a mousy companion composed the group. As Vivian's efforts to kill were thwarted, her panic rose to the point where she felt her own life was in danger."--Page [3]
