His newest book The Defrauded Yeggman will cause even more comment on the originality and resourcefulness of this master writer of mysteries.The scene of Mr. Keelers new tale is laid in the town of Harleysburg, Texas, a few miles north of the Mexican border, and begins when a million dollars is suddently and mysteriously deposited in the bank of that town.
