13 White Tulips

(A book in the Pat Abbott mystery series)
A novel by

"High ingenuity... splendid eating in San Francisco restaurants, and narrator Jean Abbott, always vividly observant of feminine fashions, this time finds that a fashion note is a vital clue." - The New York Times

Jack Ivers, an urban sophisticate with a particular fondness for wealthy women, lies peacefully in his bed, dead. This scenario is greatly convenient for the woman who finds him, as she was on the scene to kill him herself. More curious, the thirteen red tulips she noticed entering Ivers' home had been replaced by thirteen white tulips before she made her exit.
A number of people had good reason to want Jack Ivers dead, and naturally it falls to Jean and Pat Abbott to solve the confounding case.

"Brightly-told excitement, with good dressing and good food as you go along." - Lady
