In the Teeth of the Evidence

In the Teeth of the Evidence Download ð eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF All that was left of the garage was a heap of charred and smouldering beams In the driving seat of the burnt out car were the remains of a bodyAn. A good mystery story is like a magic trick We all try to find out what the secret is but we are happy if we are defeated and a trifle disappointed if we win The only difference is that the mystery writer reveals her trick at the end while the magician does notIf a full length mystery novel is a grand illusion with all the props the detective short is a parlour trick The illusion is cumbersome to set up and execute but when properly done very effective and hard to see through the parlour trick on the other hand depends entirely on the speed of the magician s hand and there is a greater chance of failure and embarrassment as the cards come slipping out of the sleeveWhich is why I think that there are very few great detective short stories compared to novels by the great authors Dorothy Sayers is no exceptionThe present collection even though enjoyable fails to present us with any great stories except one Suspicion which is excellently spine chilling The first two stories featuring the famous Lord Peter Wimsey are only average in fact the mystery in the first can be solved by any discerning reader immediately The next five featuring the travelling salesman Montague Egg are only interesting with regard to their unusual sleuth the stories are rather pedestrian The remaining tales are all stand alone stories with two or three humorous ones where a dire secret is promised only to end in a comic whimper While this is enjoyable once or twice it does become stale when repeated too oftenThe last two stories do not belong to the conventional mystery canon The penultimate one straddles reality and fantasy the last one is an out and out horror story They are interesting but nothing to write home aboutOverall verdict a nice book to curl up with at the end of a tiring day
