Make sure neither is a killer a stable full of suspects in the search for a kill. This is another set of three novellas collected into one book They are all pretty good I do claim to have figured out the murderer in the first story but the other two caught me by surprise In each one Archie admits to making mistakes That is a new behavior and felt frankly a little jarring every time it happened Of the three the final is my favorite simply because Nero solved a murder mystery in retaliation for spite After someone is murdered in Nero s office Inspector Cramer orders Nero s office to be sealed Nero is infuriated and pokes at Cramer saying that he has a suspicion of the murder based on Archies report of his activities that day which Cramer had also listened too Cramer refuses to ask what the clue was and instead leaves with the office door sealed tight With his favorite chair globe bookshelves and desk sealed away from him Nero engages to solve the murder uickly and he proceeds to do saving all the glory for himself and Archie and rubbing the nose of the police in the fact that they failed to solve it
