THE WOMAN ON THE ROOF
Wilma Rathjen lives above the garage with a view of the apartments below. Her brother Curtis has provided this safe haven for her after her breakdown. The last thing Wilma wants to do is go back to the institution. So when she looks out of her window and sees the body of her neighbor, Jeri Lynn, lying dead in her bathtub, she doesn't call the police. She waits--if the body is really there, one of the other tenants will discover it.
And discover it they do. But is this really an accident? Sergeant Osgood is not so sure. Curtis himself was known to visit Miss Lynn. The young nurse, Ann Jenner, definitely has something to hide; the old gardener, Wallace Timm, is acting evasive; and pretty-boy Tony Carmen is decidedly defensive. And then there's serviceman Phillip Blade, who shows up claiming to be Jeri's husband. Only Wilma could have seen what happened--and that someone might try to kill her next!
