INSPECTOR MARK SABER - The Case of the Locked Room (1952): Douglas Manning is found dead in his apartment. Since the apartment door was locked from the inside, it appears to be an open-and-shut case of suicide, but Inspector Mark Saber suspects foul play and methodically lays a trap for the killer.
