The Gallows in My Garden Summary

"The gallows in my garden, people say,

Is new and neat and adequately tall.

I tie the noose on in a knowing way

As one that knots his necktie for a ball;

But just as all the neighbors...on the wail...

Are drawing a long breath to shout 'Hurray!'

The strangest whim has seized me.... After all

I think I will not hang myself today.'' - From G. K. Chesterton’s "A Ballade of Suicide"

Young Donald Lawson was familiar with that poem...yet now his body hung dead on a crag. Murder or suicide, Manville Moon was already on the case, as bodyguard to Don's beautiful sister, Grace. For Grace's life was threatened, too. And to protect it Moon found himself crossing fists and guns with hired killers, and fencing desperately with Grace's friends, family, and fiancé, anyone of whom might have wanted to kill her.

    Manny Moon, the agile one-legged detective, is back on a case involving the son of his old friend Ed Brighton. Young Joe Brighton had been found by the police standing over the dead body of Bart Meyers, president of the Purple Pelicans - a juvenile gang to which Joe belonged. The knife used to kill Bart belonged to Joe’s father, and the police believed they had an open-and-shut case. But Manny didn’t think Joe was a killer and when he started investigating he uncovered some very dangerous information.
