This is a classic mystery, so is old-fashioned in feel, but quite intriguing. Mr. Cleek, detective extraordinaire is called in to solve the mysterious disappearances and the frozen flame phenomenon for the relative of a friend. Using disguises, clues, and his brain he solves several mysteries in one. Easy to read and interesting
