Description

“I don’t know…no one knows…nobody knows but me…and they’re the finest emeralds in the world…the Van Berg emeralds…and nobody knows where they are but me…”

Jim could remember drinking with Elmer Van Berg and seeing his hand holding up the priceless string of emeralds—but Elmer Van Berg was killed that night. Did Jim do it? He couldn’t remember a thing of the six weeks that followed. How could he have married the overbearing Nesta when Caroline, the lovely girl of his youth, was waiting for him? And how did the emeralds come to be in the secret hiding place in the Blue Room—the hiding place of which only he and Caroline knew the secret? The future looms malevolently, yet Caroline out of her love for him finds strength to help him to the truth…

Outrageous Fortune was originally published in 1933. This new edition features an introduction by crime fiction historian Curtis Evans.
