The Man with the Crimson Box

(1940)
(The second book in the Adventures of a Skull series)
A novel by

 
 
A man stands on the streetcorner with a crimson hatbox in his hand. An archbishop approaches him and asks what's in the box? "Wah Lee's skull. I cracked Vann's pete," is the enigmatic reply. From this simple encounter stems the trial of the century, for the crimson box does indeed hold the skull of a long-dead Chinaman (or is it?) and the man did break into D.A. Vann's safe (or did he?) A man died when the safe was cracked and somebody has to pay. And it just may be the man's lawyer, Elsa Moffit, attorney-at-law with no cases under her belt-yet!
