Some women won't wait by Erle Stanley Gardner( Book )
5 editions published between 1988 and 1998 in Chinese and held by 37 libraries 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

Fair (alias Erle Stanley Gardner) in the private sanctum of Cool & Lam, until mineral rights, marital fights, and a gossipy neighbor turn out to be more than mere figures of fun to Bertha and Donald. Things got off to a cyclonic start when a Texas tycoon breezed into their office one day and airily began discussing oil and/or minerals . . . The trouble was, he didn't stick to the point. The wells he had in mind was a Mrs. Wells. And the question was: where was she? Bertha Cool, fit to be tied, was inclined to blame the whole muddle on her partner, Donald Lam -- until he ran across the biggest blabbermouth on record, with a vicious bit in her teeth and no curb on her tongue. .

Beware the curves by Erle Stanley Gardner( Book )
4 editions published between 1993 and 1998 in Chinese and held by 19 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

Fish or cut bait by A. A Fair( Book )
2 editions published between 1992 and 1998 in Chinese and held by 19 libraries worldwide
Jarvis C. Archer was a very big fish in a very big pond. He also was one of those "Big I -- Little You" types. And he was insisting on twenty-four-hour protection for his secretary who, despite an unlisted number, was being harassed by threatening telephone calls. At first Bertha Cool was outraged by the sweatshop hours (for obvious reasons she would have to take the night shift), but the size of the fee was both soothing and persuasive. So Cool and Lam take on the case, and in no time at all Donald knows he is going to have to fish or cut bait
