Dolores Hitchens: Nets to Catch the Wind (LOA eBook Classic)
“It had been timed and planned perfectly.” A convicted killer and the detective escorting him to prison aboard a Pullman train are the victims of a mysterious double assassination. When the detective is posthumously accused of corruption and criminal conspiracy, his widow embarks on a campaign to clear him, and soon finds herself enmeshed in an ever more complex web of deception and violent danger. Master suspense writer Dolores Hitchens sustains an atmosphere in which no one, whatever their social class or walk of life, is entirely to be trusted.
Now back in print after half a century, this 1952 novel was also published in 1954 as Widows Won’t Wait.
Dolores Hitchens (1907–1973) was a prolific mystery writer, publishing Sleep With Strangers (1955), Fools’ Gold (1958), and The Watcher (1959), among other works, under her own name, and twenty additional suspense novels as D. B. Olsen.
