THE DEADLY STHEAa DOUGLAS ENEFER When Walter Holbrooke was fired from his 20, 000-a-year executive job he got three years salary and a 25, 000 golden handshake - but it didn't stop him embarking on a new and bizarre career. Crime was the name of the game - and it was to put the redoubtable Sam Bawtry on a murder hunt. At first it was just robbery by the suavely-dressed unknown the newspapers were to label the Bowler-Hatted Bandit. Murder came when he went to another plush home - and the housewife who opened the door to him saw through his disguise. Unwittingly, he had picked the one victim who could identify him. It was a recognition which she paid for with her life. The crime unleashed an army of police detectives. They ranged the city looking in vain for clues . . . until Bawtry came up with an inspired deduction. Meanwhile, the killer had fallen madly in love with a beautiful 22-year-old heiress - and made an enemy. Now the stage was set for an explosive climax in the high Bawtry tradition.
