Read just the title story. Couldn't get hold of the other ones. Got this one through mail.

Quick read. Interesting. Not sure if I would agree to the pace much.
But, for a 1947 story in a newspaper column, the pace and things make sense.

Would recommend to everyone since its quite easy to finish. ( )

This is a collection of short mystery stories featuring the "arm-chair" detective Nicky Welt and there is also an introduction by Kemelman explaining the origin of the first story about Welt. The original copyrights for these particular ones range from 1947 to 1967 so they tend to have an all male cast. The narrator is the County Attorney for a college town near Boston and a friend and former teacher at the University where Welt teaches. While I spotted the solutions for some of the stories they were enjoyable.
