I can't say it's the greatest detective fiction I have ever read, but given the era in which it was written, it's OK, even amusing. Of course the hero is practically superhuman and makes no mistakes. In many places the dialogue is stiff and corny, but that makes it endearing. Just transport yourself back to when these stories were placed in time (early 1900s) and the sophistication of its most probable enthusiasts, and yes, you can understand the popularity. I enjoy reading these early works of crime and detection because they are windows into the past and history lessons minus the tuition. These stories are not intellectual by any means, but all the same, just fun. Keep your expectations on the low side and save these stories for the beach, a long trip, or a simple diversion.
