THE COUNT OF NINE

The theft of one jade Buddha is the reason Bertha Cool is hired to guard the second during a large party but it and a blowgun for poisoned darts are taken. Donald Lam gets into the act to find the jade pieces and also the killer of their owner. He tangles with a model, a photographer, a jewel fence -- and primarily with the police before he can close the case. The old razzle-dazzle.
