Philo Gubb

by Ellis Parker Butler

I enjoyed reading this collection of stories or cases solved by a graduate of a mail order detectives school (in twelve easy lessons).

It is a comedy, as the whole small town laughs at the detective's bad disguises. He buys them from the detective school. Mr. Gubb bungles along and solves all the cases.

His love interest is also very unusual, she is a performer in a freak show: The Fat Lady.
