Murder, She Encountered by Peg Cochran

They started out going after a story about a robbery at the World's Fair.  Instead they run into a murder.  A young woman in the water with a nylon stocking around her neck.  Did she drown or did she get strangled?

Alibi and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It has just been published so you can grab a copy now.

Elizabeth is the photographer and Kaminsky is the journalist.  They make a good team.  The cops drag off a hot dog seller who paid too much attention to her.  They don't believe he's guilty so they start investigating on their own.

They question a lot of people.  But in the middle of the hunt, Kaminsky gets sick and has to stay in the hospital.  Since there was another murder, Elizabeth keeps digging.

In the meantime, she has a cop she's falling in love with.  Her mother doesn't approve.  She want her to marry a young rich man, not a cop.  Elizabeth's heart isn't listening to her.

What Elizabeth finds is a huge crime and the major killer is very dangerous.  Now that he knows she knows, he plans on killing her next...
