Clever puzzle mystery, quite enjoyable.
These short stories featuring Reggie Fortune are diverting and amusing enough that one wishes more were available here. Fortune is more than a bit of a wag, but the puzzles are good and the solutions reasonable.
Ingenious puzzle, good atmosphere, lots of fun to read.
Modern readers may find this just a tad slow, with less mystery than the length of the book justifies, but it is still a very good read.
One unusual feature is the shift in "point of view" from one narrator to another, each giving only the part of the story in which s/he is a participant.
