Nice collection of Faulkner short stories featuring Gavin Stevens. The best of all of the Stevens stories is the novel, Intruder in the Dust(not included here), but all of the ones here are quite fine. Length increases the tortured Faulknerisms but also the depth of the characterization and the impact beyond the puzzle aspect of the mystery, so the title story--the longest--is also the best, and the least mysterious. But none of them are bad, or without mystery. Or without tortured Faulknerisms. I only wanted to hurl it across the room once, though.
