¶ A Philo Vance Detective novel. Sanford Montague is away for a weekend party, dives into the swimming pool, and never comes up again. The pool is known as "The Dragon Pool" because it has long been regarded as the home of the devil-monster of the Lenape Indians. The mystery is solved by Vance partly thanks to his deep knowledge of dragon lore.
