Caspary, Vera / Eustis, Helen / Hughes, Dorothy B. / Holding, Elizabeth Sanxay  
Women Crime Writers: Four Suspense Novels of the 1940s: Laura / The Horizontal Man / In a Lonely Place / The Blank Wall
Laura: Laura Hunt was the ideal modern woman: beautiful, elegant, highly ambitious, and utterly mysterious. No man could resist her charms - not even a tough NYPD detective, who finds himself becoming obsessed with her as he tries to find out who turned her into a faceless corpse.

The Horizontal Man: When a young teacher at a college for women is brutally slain, student Molly Morrison becomes the focus of the investigation. Her confession seems to clinch the deal, but fellow student Kate Innes doesn't think Molly killed anyone, and teams up with a reporter to investigate.

In a Lonely Place: In post-World War II Los Angeles, a serial killer is preying on young working girls who wait alone in bars or at bus stops. When former airman Dix Steele has a chance meeting with his best friend from the service, now a detective assigned to the investigation, he offers to help map the killer's identity - and is soon providing eerily accurate theories.

The Blank Wall: While her husband is away fighting in World War II, well-to-do Lucia Holley is forced to take extreme measures to protect her family.
