Summary

Dorothy meets a handsome young man with an eye for her inheritance while she is in her sophomore year. They are to be married, and her life will be blissful; but Dorothy is pregnant, and her fiancé's plans are ruined, for Dorothy would be disinherited if her father discovered the truth.

So the young man provides his bride-to-be with some pills that will solve the problem. Soon there will be no baby - and perhaps no Dorothy either....

A Kiss Before Dying, Levin's first novel, earned him the 1954 Edgar Award for Best First Novel and is regarded as a modern classic.
