Dorothy Cameron Disney is my favorite so far of all the Rinehart-influenced,
HIBK school of writers - although I like Eberhart too!. I have read all 9 of
her mystery novels. Periodically, hints surface that there are uncollected
Disney short stories in old magazines or newspapers. Or maybe non-mystery writings
by this gifted author. If anyone has any concrete info on these topics, would
love to read it!
Disney's mystery novel "The Strawstack Murders" (1939) is fairly easy &
inexpensive to find in old paperback. It was known as "Strawstacks" in hardback.
This book is a real joy to read - it has a well constructed puzzle plot, along
with good HIBK atmosphere and storytelling. "Death in the Back Seat" and "the
Balcony" are also well plotted, and there is some good social commentary in the
latter volume. "Thirty Days Hath September" is not bad; the other Disney
novels seem lesser IMHO.
