(1939)
(Lam to the Slaughter)
(A book in the Donald Lam and Bertha Cool series)
A novel by

 
 
The story of how a man can commit a brutal murder, confess, and get away with it! The killer was guilty without a shred of doubt. The police had him behind bars. The district attorney had plenty of evidence. But - no court in the state could convict him! The Bigger They Come features that fast-moving, skull-cracking team: Bertha Cool, a two-hundred pound "lady" who uses the language of a longshoreman. And Donald Lam, a pint-sized process server who would have been in the morgue long ago except that he can think faster than the next man ...or woman.
