The Gun in Daniel Webster's Bust
Gun in Daniel Webster's Bust by Margaret Scherf
Book DescriptionDaniel Webster's bust sat for three dusty years in the Lentenment Decorating Shop, looking down upon a group of charmingly eccentric characters, who inhabited the untidy place. They were Emily, the owner, a lively personality with a passion for painting and life. Henry, her assistant, who has eschewed women ever since his former wife threw coffe in his face; his sister Cornelia, a picturesque failure who resented everybody, and her husband James, an ex-Harvard man with a compulsion for brushing his teeth three times a day and a penchant for virtue. These people and Luke Simpson, proprietor of the antique shop downstairs, were all concerned when the well-dressed Mrs. Delaphine, their mutual enemy. became a corpse and Daniel became a temporary arsenal. The lady in quetion was an unpleasant biddy who invited murder and got a quick answer. The first in this comic mystery series featuring Emily and Henry.
