The Hotel Dick
by Axel Brand
It's 1948 Milwaukee. The Lakeshore Towers Hotel house detective, J. Adam Bark, is murdered while sitting in a barber's chair. Homicide detective Lieutenant Joe Sonntag is sent to investigate, but has a difficult time with the barber's insistence that Spencer Tracy killed Bark.
Disbelieving, Joe begins his investigation, made all the more bizarre when Greer Garson and Veronica Lake are shot.
