of the Lame Canary"
StoryErle Stanley Gardner's 1937
Ruth Prescott wants to divorce her
husband Walter so she can be with true love Jimmy
MacLaine. After a brush with death, Ruth is convinced her
husband is trying to kill her. When Walter turns up dead

doesn't think so. A lame canary and unusual bruises on
