O'Conors of Castle Conor, County Mayo

by Anthony Trollope

This is a humorous short story that is a witty, fun, quick read about Mr. Green and a night of mayhem at Castle O'Conor caused by the mistaken absence of his pumps (dancing shoes). Being cordially invited to an evening of dance Mr Green is dismayed that his only shoes, a pair of heavy hunting boots, will prevent an adequate performance on the dance floor. What is he to do? Trade shoes with the butler of course!

Murder!

by Arnold Bennett

This is a very short story and Bennett does a good job of developing the characters. The story is more about paranoia than anything else and if you're looking for a mystery look elsewhere, there is none here, but for a decent drama this book was pretty good.

The Murder at Jex Farm

by George Ira Brett

Murder at Jex Farm is a short mystery with a good story line. There is a mysterious murder and Inspector Battle is sent to solve the crime. The investigation is presented from Mr. Battle's perspective. But for the ending, which was rather vague and open-ended, this was a good, well thought out mystery.

The Tomb's Secret

by Robert E. Howard

This is a good period mystery from the early 20th century with the main character, Detective Rollins, playing the Bruce Willis Die Hard type. There is more action than mystery and the ending was rather uninspired, but the 'secret' was well conceived. A good premise mildly executed.
