The Shocking Pink Hat

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

"Army intelligence work whets Pat's wits for lively, well-plotted and mystifying case with spouse stooging pleasantly." - The Saturday Review

From the Jacket: San Francisco is the locale of this fast-paced mystery by the author of The Indigo Necklace and The Man in Gray - San Francisco of the fabulously steep hills, the fog drifting in over the bay, the excellent restaurants and the exotic dives. On one of its hills, in a muffling fog, Pat and Jean Abbott, Mrs. Crane's delightful sleuthing couple, see a car crash into a hydrant, and it's no surprise to anyone when a murdered man is found slumped behind the wheel. The dead man, however, is the estranged husband of a very good friend of the Abbotts, Nancy Leland. Because Nancy is suspected of the murder, the Abbotts are from then on involved in two more murders, mayhem and a few other slightly illegal activities. A grim chain of apparently unrelated clues leads them to the murderer, and to a solution of more than passing interest to the Federal Bureau of Narcotics."
