I got this book when I was in junior high - found it the other day while cleaning out the garage. Delightful! Three short detective stories from the early 20th century - the author died on the Titanic relatively young (37). If he had not, Conan Doyle and Sherlock would have had some serious American competition.

I've been pecking away at this collection over the last couple of years. Occasionally good, occasionally absurd, nothing that will change my overall opinion of short detective fiction.
