In The Strength of the Gemini, smooth talking con-man Paul Derring makes a play for Elizabeth Clarmont. He seems to know everything about the beautiful young woman despite only just meeting her.
It turns out that Derring gets his inside knowledge by sending fake letters to Esther (via her newspaper column), when Esther realises that she has seen very similar letters, all from wealthy young debby types, she persuades Gradley to try and catch him in the act. Esther also goes undercover as Derring’s latest target.
Norman Eshley first tangles with the gorgeous Jenny Hanley but of course he is no match for the combined efforts of Esther and Grad.
