Murder Most Fowl

The murder took place by the pool
where climate was kept very cool

The murderer's credo:

To kill in tuxedo
But Hildegarde took him to school

Penguin Pool Murder (George Archainbaud, 1932)
starred Edna Mae Oliver as Hildegarde Withers, an
elderly schoolteacher turned sleuth who solves crimes
to the constant annoyance of Police Inspector Oscar
Piper, played by character actor
James Gleason.

The whole thing was quite a big blur
but one thing was certain and sure
The operandi
was carried out by
a paperback book publisher
