Abstract:

On the campus of Western University, south of San Francisco, in a house dubbed the "honeymoon cottage" on Faculty Row, a young woman named Claire Linden is found dead in her bathtub by her husband, Paul Linden, the manager of the University Press. The police quickly rule it a murder and arrest Paul for the crime. Only two people are convinced of Paul's innocence, his brother (a local doctor) and Wynne "Breezy" West, gal-reporter for the San Francisco Star. Breezy believes in Paul because she has known him for years and they have recently renewed their friendship -- a friendship that has advanced to romance, albeit still a platonic one. When their relationship is uncovered by a rival newspaper reporter and splashed across the headlines, it makes it look even more like Paul is guilty. But Breezy continues to investigate, hoping to uncover the real killer before a jury passes a guilty verdict of murder in the first degree. The novel is a thinly disguised account of the case of David Lamson, an editor at the Stanford University Press, who was accused of murdering his wife Allene on Memorial Day, 1933.
