Grant, M. (n.d.). The Black Hush. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Cardona?s watchful eyes picked out a small group of men who entered through a revolving door. The detective?s quick glance settled upon one individual?a heavy?built man of more than average height, whose chief item of attire was an expensive astrakhan coat. As this arrival strode across the lobby, he half turned his head in Cardona?s direction. Grinning at a companion?s remark, the man displayed a glimmer of gold in his thick?lipped mouth. Cardona needed no further sign of recognition. This glitter from a full, heavy face was the identifying mark of Goldy Tancred. This was the man whose coming the detective had awaited.
