Abstract:

"When Jeff Strover, the freshman member of the New York City Council, introduced a bill to change the name of the McKeever Place, it seemed a routine matter. But George Wright, City Hall man of the Record-Star, was curious, though at the start his curiosity may had no more excuse that the fact that Strover's fiancée, Barbara Padgett, was by far the best looking Portia of the New York bar. But when Strover is murdered with a samurai sword, and Barbara Padgett is charged with murder, and a mysterious blonde slips George a Mickey Finn, there is no doubt that politics has its occupational hazards."--Jacket.
