Clearly lays down some important rules for detective fiction, rules which hold up even 90 or so years after the piece was first published. Also does a great job of establishing the boundaries between mystery novels and related genres, like secret service fiction, and in explaining why those distinctions matter. A great resource for mystery writers, fans of detective fiction, and dungeon masters looking to craft their next adventure.
