A Murder Whodunit!
Location: Hampstead, England.
Victim: Sir Horace Fewbanks, a distinguished High Court judge. Cause of death: gun shot wound.
Investigator: Private Detective Crewe, a wealthy bachelor who has taken up crime detection as a hobby, because it provides intellectual challenges more satisfying even than playing twelve simultaneous boards against Russian chess champion Turgieff.

Other whodunit elements: clues galore, suspects in abundance, an inquest, a trial, and an elegant resolution.

Very good!

Subject: Dated but interesting
This book has a twisty plot that maintains the reader's interest, although its structure doesn't always make the most of its revelations. The main reader is a bit wooden but this somehow adds to the period feel of the story. It's fascinating to see early examples of the murder mystery genre.
