I always enjoy a George Harmon Coxe mystery and this one was no exception. The main character, Dr. Paul Standish, is a medical doctor who sidelines as the medical examiner for a small community. A killing associated with a nightclub, a hoodlum, and a jazz trumpeter, who is a friend of the doctor, involves him in this case. Perhaps not as strongly plotted as his earlier works, this one seems to be setting the doctor up as a series detective, which I don’t believe ever happened. That’s a shame.
