Abstract:

"The Baron [von Kaz] became embroiled in this, his third adventure, because he inadvertently overheard a telephone conversation in a bar in a small Mexican seaport, Acapulco. This overheard conversation led to his encounter with the man with the head of a Botticelli angel, who was so rash as to try and poison the Baron's drink. In self-defense the Baron switched the drinks, and regretted that he was thus forced to watch the angelic man die amidst the dust and flies of a Mexican alley. The Baron returned to the ship bearing him to San Francisco. Then came the morning when he awoke to find the nearly nude body of the girl with red hair lying on the floor of his cabin, a deadly length of the blade of the Baron's umbrella sword sheathed in her back. The Baron was justifiably annoyed, and later when his beloved green umbrella, blade and all, disappeared, he angrily resolved to put an end to this nonsense, which was interfering with his amatory correspondence. But the Baron has always been the victim of circumstances. Before that all-important letter could be finished he, among other things, was frightened by a cat, drank innumerable quarts of champagne, interviewed a mysterious baldheaded giant, fell down a cellar and was socked on the head with a mallet, thus precipitating the dramatic climax of his most baffling case, a climax which occurred hundreds of feet above San Francisco Bay on the fog-washed roadway of the great new Golden Gate bridge." --
