Dust jacket by Gavin L. O'Keefe



Poor Margaret Annister is going to die in the gas chamber for the poison murder of her sister—unless her new attorney Croxson Kalver can convince the governor that she is innocent. But the forces lined up against her are formidable, and one of them is Gorilla Svenson, head of the local Nevada City mob. Everybody knows that he is too stupid to make big decisions but he’s got one of the most brilliant criminal minds of the West advising him. If only Kalver could find the identity of this genius moll—whom nobody has ever seen—before the pellet falls on the woman he loves!
