KIRKUS REVIEW

The zenith of the impossible--the murder victim in the locked room. All of these stories revolve around tantalizing improbabilities. How was the priceless Christmas doll swiped from its display case which was under the very watchful eye of Ellery Queen? How could the flying saucer researcher have been killed in that bolted room? ""Nothing's Impossible"" here as a man jumps out of a window and doesn't touch ground until almost forty minutes later; a dog displays supernatural powers of detection. Contributors include John Dickson Carr, G. K. Chesterton, Miriam Allen deFord. Anthony Boucher, Henry Kane, etc. You'll double lock your door and bolt it down.
