KIRKUS REVIEW

Long time favorite, Fortune, omnibused with one full length novel -- The Bishop's Crime (1941) and some short stories: The Broken Toad; The Yellow Slugs: The Hole In The Parchment: The Gipsy Moth: The Greek Play: The Little Finger: The Holy Well: The Yellow Cloth: The Point of the Knife: The Yellow Diamonds: The Brown Paper, . Good cream skimming of recent years' output from the intuitive, highly stylistic and mannered detective whose solutions of well-conceived puzzles have kept him well in the vanguard of storybook sleuths. For strong partisans particularly.
