Grant, M. (n.d.). The Death Sleep. Retrieved from

Excerpt: IT was nearly midnight when a taxicab stopped in front of the exclusive Vanderpool Apartments. Two persons alighted from the car. One was a gentleman attired in a full?dress suit; the other a lady who wore a magnificent leopard?skin coat. The door man bowed as they entered the lobby of the Vanderpool. Clark Doring and his wife were frequent visitors to this apartment house. When they stepped into the elevator, the operator bowed and pressed the automatic stop for the fifth floor. He knew that these arrivals were coming to join the party in progress at the apartment of Seth Tanning.
