Excerpt
RALPH JORCOTT settled himself in a corner of the half-filled subway car and casually began to read an evening newspaper. The headlines pleased him; they referred to crime. Not merely one crime, but a dozen; all belonging to a mysterious wave that had swept New York. Crimes that were particularly baffling, because the police were totally unable to trace the real perpetrators. Jewel thefts, robberies of art treasures, stock swindles, and other specialties had been executed in clockwork fashion. Every time the police centered on one trail, new crime occurred elsewhere. Obviously, different hands were at work, for no crime produced a direct link to any other.
