Some slips don't show by Erle Stanley Gardner( Book )

It wasn't blackmail -- at least not the ordinary kind. Donald Lam had come to San Francisco to see what he could do for a client who had, it seemed, been indiscreet and had received a letter threatening to tell his wife all. But when Lam met Lois Marlow, she denied a blackmail attempt and was very friendly. She even asked him to make coffee while she dressed. "You watching that coffee, Donald?" she called through a crack in the bedroom door. "Not yet. A watched pot never boils." She opened the door. The light streaming through the bedroom window made an intriguing silhouette. "Your slip's showing." Lois looked down at the silhouette and laughed. "Some slips don't show, Donald."

Beware the curves by Erle Stanley Gardner( Book )
2 editions published in 1997 in Czech and held by 4 libraries worldwide
The first job was simple. Find the name of a man. He was to get the name of a man who provided the plot of a book. With just a few things to go on Donald Lam does exactly that - much to his frustration. He provides that information to his client - the name of the man, then acts surprised when his client really wanted more. Lam points out that if he was REALLY interested in the murder of the man, he made three big mistakes. The first was not telling him, so Lam could cover his back trail. The second was not telling him the man the police were interested in fit his description. The third was not leaving a phone number so Donald could warn him that the police might just be interested in a private eye who was looking up a famous murder case. Still, he was all business after that - pay him for the job. However, his partner accepts a second job - find out if it is safe for the client to come back since the death of the only man who could identify him in the murder case. It wasn't, but the man is arrested. Still, even Lam's job as a jury consultant to a law school friend of his wasn't the key to the case - it was Donald's own legal knowledge and ability to bait a trap. Maybe the real killer would never be prosecuted for it, but Donald's job was saving his client

Doris Kane drove to Madison City to visit her married daughter Paula Marlin. But no one was home, and she was frightened by a bloodstain in one bedroom. Doris goes to tell Sheriff Rex Brandon, and D.A. Doug Selby gets involved. The complication is that her son-in-law Jim Melvin had backed the Selby's opponent. When they return things have been cleaned. Then A. B. Carr, the Los Angeles shyster lawyer, stops his car to meet Jim Melvin. Carr does not answer their question about a pistol shot. Milton Granby tells his story; he was at that party and a stranger accidentally shot himself in his arm, then drove himself home. Hudson L. Parlin shows up; he is the investor in the parking meter business, and James L. Melvin is his salesman for the region. Doris had stopped at a motor court. Jim Marlin came by and explained their absence. Jim asks Doris to join them where they are staying. Doris then meets Eve Dawson. their secret house guest, and learns about the secret. The next morning Doris is awakened by a scream from Paula. Eve was dead, a knife in her chest! Sheriff Rex Brandon is called. D.A. Selby and the coroner arrive. Their investigation continues. Sheriff Brandon explains the source of A.B. Carr's power: he gets the big shots out of their difficulties. Doug Selby goes with reporter Sylvia Martin to the home town of Eve "Dawson" Hollenberg. They get little information from Eve's mother. The murder weapon may have been bought in Highdale, Eve's home town. They find out about another young woman from nearby, Eleanor Harlan, who roomed with Eve. There is a surprise in Chapter 15 - fingerprints are found where they shouldn't be found. Paula explains that a device like a self-resetting parking meter can't be sold simply on its merits. Consideration must be given to those who would approve of any sale. [Not unlike closing a sale on a golf course where there are no witnesses.] When Paula gets a phone call and leaves, Doris is left alone at night. Something happens. Brandon and Selby show up. Later Sylvia Martin reports that Eleanor Harlan overdosed on sleeping pills (Chapter 18)! The Chief of Police arrives with a search warrant, looking for Eleanor Harlan in Sylvia Martin's apartment (Chapter 20). The true facts begin to emerge in Chapter 21. There is more action in Chapter 22 when a man is arrested. In Chapter 24 a man who sets a trap must be careful not to be caught himself. The newspaper story in Chapter 25 sums it up. Erle Stanley Gardner has written another fast-moving exciting mystery novel. Gardner used municipal corruption as the background to this story, something that Chandler or Hammett never cared to do. Gardner does warn about the problems that a young woman will face if she goes to Hollywood. There is a problem with self-resetting parking meters. Running for a fixed time allows an independent estimate of the monies taken. A variable time period can allow skimming cash due to a lack independent estimates. That is the reason they used train tickets rather than trust a conductor back in the 1870s
