Great short story - 101 pages. Fast paced who done it. This story introduces you to the main characters who are also in next two books. I loved this author's writing style. The book was written in 1911. If you enjoy reading old fashioned, classic mysteries such as Agatha Christie and Arthur Conan Doyle, you will also enjoy this author's books.
