The cases solved by Trevis Tarrant, during the early 1930's, assisted by his manservant (who is in actuality a Japanese spy) include locked rooms, headless corpses, a vanishing harp, and newly built but haunted house, and other bizarre events.

    So far, two great stories--"The Episode of the Nail and the Requiem" and "The Episode of 'Torment IV'"--a couple not bad ones, and a couple of the worst mysteries I've ever read, with "The Episode of the Vanishing Harp" the worst in the book. All average out to OK, but this is feeling like it's taking me forever. So I'm moving on. BTW, this book has an awful cover.
