Average Rating of 4 from 1 reviews: ****

Of all the series that Seabury Quinn wrote the Problems of Professore Forrester is probably the best. This is the third in the series, and shows the Ptof. at his best. It is also a unique series in that to counter the Prof., is his niece, Rosaliem who is not one of your pulp shrinking violets needing rescuing from the villains, but an able, bright, and active partner.
