Abstract:

In this case concerning a whiplash injury, it's a question of whose neck is at stake. . . Bertha Cool was in a flap. The distinguished Mr. Homer Breckinridge had been waiting twenty minutes for Donald Lam to make an appearance, and around Mr. Breckinridge was the heady aroma of C-A-S-H.

But it didn't take Donald long to find out it was anything but safe, and that he was the one up for grabs....
