Freeman took some pride in his "inverted detective stories" where the crime is told first, then the investigation. Four of the five stories in this collection are like that. These are good stories of detection, based on Dr. Thorndyke's scientific methods.
A brief early American detective story. A young man investigating a counterfeiting case, stumbles into a family controversy - that eventuates in murder.
This is an enjoyable "locked room" type mystery, written in a whimsical style.
A fun read. (Don't read the reviews below. One of them is a total spoiler!) Recommended.
