Seventeen priceless stories from the author often referred to as Americas Agatha ChristieCharlotte MacLeods heroes were men and women like Peter Shandy and Sarah Kellinggenteel sleuths who fight crime with brains, not brawnand her settings were the drawing rooms and servants quarters of New England and beyond. With a keen wit and a strong eye for detail, she crafted some of the most memorable victims, murderers, and innocent bystanders of twentieth-century detective novels. In this volume, she proves herself a master of the short story as well. Here is the original Peter Shandy story, featuring the school that would eventually metamorphose into Balaclava Agricultural College. Here is peculiar Cousin Claude, who strangles himself with his own necktie. And here is the tale that answers the question What does Max Bittersohn do when his wife is not around? Whether the characters are familiar or not, the style is irresistible, and the mysteries are as delightfully puzzling as ever.
