"The Slaying of Joseph Bowne Elwell is a brilliant reconstruction and analysis of the events leading up to the crime and of the investigation. But the book is far more than a true-life whodunnit. The author paints a picture of a Manhattan high-society at the advent of the Jazz Age; cast a critical eye upon certain American investigative procedures; describes what befell those involved in the case when it was no longer front-page news. His extensive research has leading to a solution to the riddle that, though more dramatic in shocking than most fictional denouements, is entirely convincing." -- from the front panel blurb.
