Lockridge, Richard and Frances: Murder out of Turn
This is a Mr. and Mrs. North mystery with their friend Lieutenant Weigand. This story introduces Dorian Hunt (who many books later becomes Dorian Weigand), who hates hunters, even if the hunter is hunting a murderer. The Lockridges also wrote about Inspector Heimrich, in later books, Captain Heimrich of the New York State Police, in a little town in upstate New York; he is also in this story as the murder takes place at Lone Lake in his jurisdiction.
This book was first published in 1941 and this Pocket Books edition was published in 1946 when good paper was still scarce.
