A murder mystery set in the 1930's, this book chronicles the murder investigation of a dime-a-dance girl. The police focus on a suspect right away who conveniently has problems with his memory which only enhances his presumed guilt.

Fans of old-fashioned mysteries will like this book. It is much more of a character-based novel rather than a crime-focused one.

A very interesting constructed book of life in the earlier days, and how a crime can be commited, but not by the alleged felon. Very good read.

A showgirl has been murdered and the obvious suspect is Herbert White, an eccentric who writes fan letters to starlets. But is Mr. White the killer? What begins as a simple crime ends up much more complex and mysterious!

St. Paul, Minnesota, 1939. The body of a beautiful dime-a-dance girl is found on a hillside, and Police Lieutenant Wesley Horner, struggling and alone after his wife's recent death, heads the investigation into her murder. His chief suspect is Herbert White, an eccentric recluse and hobby photographer who spends his days recording his life in detailed journal entries and scrapbooks. In Mr. White's Confession, Robert Clark illuminates the complex relationships between truth and fiction, past and present, faith and memory.
