It stared as a routine tail -- shadowing an oily hustler who'd been courting a well-heeled matron. But the assignment soon led Donald Lam to a sleazy hotel room with a sexy barfly. And now she's left him high and dry with a pair of corpses dumped in his lap. Suddenly he's the cops' prime suspect. And it'll take some fancy footwork to sidestep the law . . . and the real killer, who intends to leave Bertha Cool partnerless

When the beautiful girlfriend of a notorious gangster vanishes, the last man to be seen with her needs an alibi - and fast. Enter Donald Lam of the Cool & Lam detective agency. Donald tracks down the two women with whom his client claims to have spent the night and the client declares the case closed. But it's not. Something about his client's story doesn't add up, and Donald can't resist the temptation to keep digging. Before he knows it, he's dug up connections to a mining scam, an illegal casino, and a double homicide - plus an opportunity for an enterprising private eye to make a small fortune, if he can just stay alive long enough to cash in on it

Crows can't count by A. A Fair( Book )
1 edition published in 1995 in Chinese and held by 1 library worldwide
In this story, a client (Harry Sharples) asks for assistance in determining why the beneficiary of a trust (Shirley Bruce) that he co-administers is behaving the way she is. There are two beneficiaries, the other; (Robert Hockley) is a spendthrift who is always asking for more money. By the terms of the trust, it is possible for the relative amounts of the disbursement to be changed; however Shirley is willing to allow Robert to receive more money than she does. The story revolves around a necklace made from emeralds. The trust has major holdings in Columbia, specifically gold and emerald mines. The Colombian government has a monopoly on emeralds, so the output of the mine is strictly regulated. Things change quickly when the other trust administrator (Robert Cameron) is found stabbed to death. Lam and Sharples discover the body and Lam immediately suspects a set-up. What further confuses the issue is that loose emeralds seem to be present in abundance. Cameron has a pet crow that moves between two nests and Lam finds emeralds in both locations. There is a beautiful artist and her hotheaded mother, who tries to knife Lam. With so many characters having their own contributions to the mystery, there are more than enough suspects to obfuscate the culprit
Some women won't wait by Erle Stanley Gardner( Book )
1 edition published in 2001 in Chinese and held by 1 library worldwide
An old and rheumatic man, (Bicknell) comes to the Cool & Lam agency seeking help for a young woman Mira Woolford) who is being blackmailed. Mira had married his partner and when the partner died, she inherited half of his substantial estate. His death was sudden, so there is some suspicion as to the cause. Mira is in Hawaii, so Bicknell hires Bertha and Donald to travel with him to the islands on a deluxe cruise ship. Once they arrive in Hawaii, Donald manages to loosen Bertha up, getting her to wear Hawaiian dresses and even a bathing suit. Donald manages to befriend Mira and Norma, her friend with similar ambitions. There is more than one person attempting to blackmail Mira, and one of them gets a bullet between the eyes. Bertha and Bicknell discover the body in the victim's house and enter the crime scene and remove some evidence. This gets them in trouble and Donald manages to fix some of the damage. The suspicion falls on Mira, and Donald begins working to establish her innocence. The murderer is exposed, largely due to police work. This book is different from most of the other Bertha Cool/Donald Lam books, in that the police are not nitwits. While it appears that Donald is a step ahead of the law, he is not. They are abreast of his every move and identify the killer before Donald does. I enjoyed this plot device, as the recurrent theme of heavy handed, somewhat dull-witted police grows stale after it is used several times. This is one of the better Bertha Cool/Donald Lam mysteries
