This book is one of the finest collection of mystery novels from a single-author who was never part of the hard-boiled trio, and even then had carved his own niche in the genre that, at times, seemed to outshine even his "mother" base, i.e. science-fiction.

This is is what feature grew fans for Brown, ...more
