    Edward D Hoch(Author) Francis M. Nevins(Author) Martin Greenberg(Author)
Leopold in these 24 stories is the head of homicide, later to become the department of violent crimes. Because he is given to interior musing, we learn the workings of the mind of a thoughtful detective. Showing Leopold s mind, Hoch develops nuances of character rare in mystery stories. The House by the Ferris poses a typical Hoch problem. Ancient crone Stella Gaze predicts that four men will dieby earth, air, fire, and water. Leopold is called in when one man drowns, is called again when another burns. The crimes seem to have been concocted by a witch."

The Captain Leopold tales--like most mysteries written by Edward D. Hoch-- feature "bizarre crimes, subtle clues, brilliant deduction, and of course the ethos of playing fair with the reader that distinguishes the work of Carr, Christie, and Queen."--Francis M. Nevins, Jr., from the Introduction The Captain Leopold taleslike most mysteries written by Edward D. Hoch feature bizarre crimes, subtle clues, brilliant deduction, and of course the ethos of playing fair with the reader that distinguishes the work of Carr, Christie, and Queen. Francis M. Nevins, Jr., from the Introduction"

    I love short stories and these are a particularly good selection. I have read this on kindle unlimited and will certainly read more by this author. The only problem for me was the overlong introduction.

    The blurb at the back gives a copyright for the Leopold list of stories but there's no list. Can I get one sent to me? There's also no contents page.
