These stories Miss Withers and inspector Piper are indicative of the period. I first saw the Penguin Pool Murder made into a film in the 40's. I was too young, but when many old mysteries have been replayed on TMC, I was hooked. Nearly all of the books are out of print, so whenever I find one of Stuart Palmer's books I get it. Somewhat formulaic, Hildegarde and Piper are a likable couple. I also liked the nurse stories written by Mary Roberts Rinehart that are similar to this collection. Probably would be called a cozy today.
