Follow the Clues step #24: from Running to Run
A private detective goes undercover in a prison, taking the place of a dead bank robber, in order to gain the trust of a crime boss and find a treasure in stolen jewels. Tagging along as the gang breaks out of prison, the detective has to avoid the gang’s suspicions, keep them from finding out about his sweetheart, and avoid the police.
Hardboiled, suspenseful, and tightly written, this one was enjoyable, though perhaps not groundbreaking in terms of plotting.
