Curl up with another classic locked room mystery from author Carolyn Wells. Following The Clue and The Gold Bag, A Chain of Evidence is the third book in The Fleming Stone Mysteries.

A man is found murdered in a locked Manhattan apartment, the only other inhabitants of which were his niece and a servant. The niece, under suspicion, will be indicted unless Otis Landon, a young lawyer from the apartment across the hall can discover the real killer.

The clues, a safety deposit key, a woman’s hat pin without a head, a railroad timetable, and two music hall tickets, each point to a different person, none of whom can have committed the crime. From these clues, Landon, with the help of the noted detective, Fleming Stone, must forge the chain of evidence with which he can convict the killer and prove the innocence of the niece.

They are definitely period (20’s and 30’s) and somewhat dated but they fulfill a nice, clean mystery niche I am enjoying this series of books written by Carolyn Wells over 80 years ago. They are definitely period (20’s and 30’s) and somewhat dated but they fulfill a nice, clean mystery niche. The characters are somewhat predictable but what mystery story written in that time period wasn’t somewhat formulaic?

A Glimpse into another time. I have read a number of Carolyn Wells’ mysteries now. They are all similar although the characters do change. These are interesting because they are good period pieces. I got a glimpse into the high society folks from before WW1. Since I have read a lot of mysteries I pay close attention to what she writes, what characters she introduces and when. I can usually figure it out within the first two or three chapters but not always. So I like that her stories keep me trying to figure out…

Oldy but goodie While the style is old, the writing is excellent; very much like snuggling in an old housecoat in front of a fire with a cup of tea. I enjoyed it very much.
