The Case of The Bouncing Betty

(1956)
(A book in the Ed Noon series)
A novel by

 
 
"The first time I saw Betty she was bouncing. She kept on bouncing right up until the day she died. Why she died was no more important than why she bounced. Because when I found out why Betty bounced, I found out why she died."--Ed Noon, Private Eye

<>Ed Noon gets mixed up with a 400-lb mattress tester, a gangster, and a pile of dead bodies in one of his wackiest capers.<>

How many kinds of trouble can a girl get into on a mattress? Plenty... and Ed Noon thought he knew them all until he met Betty. For Betty was a mattress tester and she'd just bounced herself into a situation that had sent bullets whizzing about her ears and strangers haunting her footsteps. And that was the kind of trouble that called for a private eye like Ed Noon. Before he could bounce her out of it, he'd have to help her test a double-bed made for the morgue!

ED NOON SERIES

The Adventures of Ed Noon, Private Eye, span over 30 novels written between 1953 and 1990. Noon starts out dirt poor with a tiny office in Midtown Manhattan (his "Mouse Auditorium") but success moves him to better digs, a lovely secretary (Melissa Mercer) and, eventually, the most important client of all: the President of the United States. The series concludes with a daring turn toward science fiction in the last two novels. Through it all, the wisecracking Noon is consistent: a movie and baseball-obsessed romantic who always fights the good fight. And, more often than not, wins.
