QED dust jacket

The stories written for This Week kept coming, starting with this one from July 27, 1963 (reprinted in Q.E.D. as “Kidnaping Department: The Broken T”). The story starts with the perspective of a kidnapping from the napped kid’s perspective, which is a nice change. She can tell one thing about where her abducters took her: a neon sign across the road reads “EAT” with a broken T. No such sign exists (and wouldn’t any self-respecting restaurant sign say “Eats,” anyway)? Ellery figure the sign is missing an M, and another story is piled onto the butchers’ wagon.
