Books: June Murders

MURDER AT THE SCHOOLHOUSE — A. B. Cunningham — Duffon ($2).

Mary Shaw was a mountaineer's daughter who went away to college, came back to Deer Lick to teach school and be murdered. The scandal that came out shook even the Sheriff. Solution: as simple as basket weave.

THE MAN IN THE MOONLIGHT—Helen McCloy — Morrow ($2). Fairly cerebral story of murder at Yorkville University, where Victim Dr. Konradi, an Austrian, had found refuge and money for biochemical research. When suspects refuse a lie-detector test, a psychiatric assistant to the D. A. does his stuff.

THREE NAMES FOR MURDER —Harriette R. Campbell—Harper ($2).

Good intrigue...
