The Longer the Thread (An Inner Sanctum Mystery)


Category: Fiction: Mystery

Emma Lathen


Copyright/published Year: 1971 by Simon and Schuster


Binding: hardcover

John Putnam Thatcher once again rises to the challenge of financial trickery and murder, this time in the unlikely setting of a garment factory in Puerto Rico.

Harry Zimmerman, a Seventh Avenue garment manufacturer, has opened a Sloan-backed plant in San Juan, Slax Unlimited. His brother-in-law runs it. Barely two years in operation, the plant is already beset by "accidents." Foreman Benito Dominguez is suspected of being the saboteur. Then his body is found in the front office, a membership card for an anti-American, pro-Independence organization in his pocket. Student radical leader Prudencio Nadal calls on the workers to strike. Zimmerman flies down from New York. So does Thatcher, hot on the trail of Slax Unlimited's dwindling resources.
