Harry's back! That's right, Harry Monday, that Sam Spade wannabe in the trench coat and gumshoes, is hot and on his latest case. Does he know what he's doing? Who knows? Is he over his head? Of course. Especially when its a triple homicide at the Restful Glen Psychiatric Annex. Only after he arrives does he find out that its one guy with three personalities. Who killed Jeffrey Stadtlander? Was it the congressman who, in a crisis, becomes Edgar Allan Poe? Or maybe it was the librarian who runs hot and cold? Or what about the mailman who has more personalities than he ever had on his route? "Clues are falling like cigarettes in the boys' bathroom," he says as he soon finds himself committed and not just to the case. This wise-cracking whodunit will have you guessing until the final red herring or perhaps Harry's goose is cooked.
