Interesting mystery. Although fiction, it gives a glimpse of conditions in the south post-civil war. I enjoyed it.
David Lyons’s book reviews
A short story about morality in business. As timely today as over a century ago.
An unbelievable story of an unbelievable hero. But he not only rescues the girl but he 'gets' the girl too. And everyone lives happily ever afterward.
A little melodramatic but I enjoyed the story. And I have always been a sucker for a happy ending (more or less). It tends to give you the flavor of Europe in a bygone era.
This is a good, if lengthy, murder mystery. Lots of twists and turns. If you like the genre you will probably enjoy the story.
Very well written. Good characterization. A few twists and turns along the way with a surprise ending. I enjoyed it very much.
A few 'homey' stories that are of interest if you can handle the dialect which gets a little thick at times. Reflects the importance story-telling had in peoples lives before the advent of radio and television,
Not my cup of tea! Too depressing.
Although short - I enjoyed this story. Too bad the site doesn't have more by Dashiell Hammett.
If you are a big Wodehouse fan, as I am, you will enjoy this book immensely. It has all the interesting characters and plot lines to hold your interest. I hope you find it as amusing as I did.
