Sweet Night for Murder tells how young and pretty Cathy Simpson comes to Sydney to spend a few weeks with friends before her marriage to wealthy grazier Roger Clements. But it is with horror that her friends Keith and Jess Watson find her murdered on their terrace one beautiful summer evening. However, when Inspector Grogan and Sergeant Manning, of the Sydney C.I.B., start their inquiries, a trail of deceit and even blackmail is unearthed, and it seems that many of Cathy's so-called friends have good reason to dislike and even fear her. But with their usual calm investigations Grogan and Manning manage to ascertain the identity of the murderer as the story comes to a thrilling ending (The Australian Women's Weekly, 31 August 1960).
