"Murder By The Book" Reviewed by Anthony Boucher, October 28, 1951

from "Criminals at Large," by Anthony Boucher, New York Times, October 28, 1951.

"…[T]he solution is at once plausible and surprising (if not quite deductively watertight). Wolfe and Archie are both in top form and Stout has rarely done a better novelistic job of putting flesh on assorted minor characters. The insatiate fans will be happier than ever, and anyone who's been wavering in his allegiance to Stout and Wolfe should come back and try this one."

This year's Bouchercon World Mystery Convention, named for the late Anthony Boucher (William Anthony Parker White), well-known writer and critic from the New York Times, will be held September 15 through 18 in St. Louis, Missouri. The prestigious Anthony Awards are given annually with the winners selected by the attendees of Bouchercon.
