Philo Vance is the detective in this story. It involves the murder of a man at an archery range and a killer who calls himself "The Bishop". The Bishop taunts the police and Philo with nursery rhyme clues. Suspects become plentiful and the clues scarce. Eventually Philo develops a plan to reveal the murderer. But like all good mysteries it is not who you suspected. A couple of these Philo Vance mysteries were made into movies starring William Powell in the 1930s. When I read these books I always see William Powell as Philo Vance.
