Abstract:

Money in the bank has always been a persuasive factor in Bertha Cool's life -- and Lamont Hawley represented a lot of it. He also represented an insurance company that smelled a rat about a traffic accident claim -- 30,000 smackers for a whiplash injury. The trouble was the claimant had drifted away -- a beautiful blonde who had been most co-operative and levelheaded. In fact, too levelheaded -- she sounded almost professional. Donald didn't like it. Why should a large insurance company need an outside investigator? But Bertha's greedy little eyes were already registering $$$$ . . . So Donald gets cracking, and in no time is the prime object of Sgt. Sellars' suspicion. For what on earth was a body doing in the trunk of Donald's car?
