Baby, You're Guilt-Edged by Carter Brown

A Carter Brown "Lovely" Mystery

There were two of them in the police car and one look at the accident was enough. The guy who had been driving needed a preacher, not an ambulance. A routine assignment for a cop, or so Dave Gault thought, but the cop who had been in the police car with him ended up dead that night. A week later, he ended up in the pen with a two to five stretch which showed Dave was a cop with different ambitions anyway. Then his wife disappeared and he figured the pen could get along without him. That was when Dave met Lorraine, the girl who fixed the bullet hole in his shoulder amongst other things. The rest of the problem was simple, all he had to do was find out how he was framed and who did it. And find out why that envelope was worth as much as it seemed to be. Didn't he mention the envelope? That was what started the whole trouble..................
