Wheels of Misfortune

In my Kirkus Reviews column today, I look back at Erle Stanley Gardner’s other great mystery-fiction series, that one starring the odd-couple detective duo of Bertha Cool and Donald Lam. Specifically, I recall 1941’s Spill the Jackpot, the series’ fourth installment, which finds the pair in Las Vegas, trying to track down a runaway fiancée and get to the bottom of a slot machine racket.

You will find that piece here.
