Sneak Peek! Philo Vance Double Feature!

18 Feb

February 18, 2019

Coming soon, my reviews of a pair of mystery novels featuring S.S. Van Dine’s master detective, Philo Vance!

 

Philo Vance gets mixed up in murder with the zany radio star, Gracie Allen. Along for the ride is her husband, superstar George Burns. But all is not what it seems, not by a long shot.

 

 

The police are baffled, the District Attorney is stumped, and the press is calling for answers. Who killed famed singer “The Canary”? Philo Vance will get to the bottom of this classic locked room mystery.

——————–

Philo Vance is a fictional character featured in 12 crime novels written by S. S. Van Dine (the pen name of Willard Huntington Wright), published in the 1920s and 1930s. During that time, Vance was immensely popular in books, movies, and on the radio. He was portrayed as a stylish, even foppish dandy; a New York bon vivant possessing a highly intellectual bent. The novels were chronicled by his friend Van Dine (who appears as a kind of Dr. Watson figure in the books as well as being the author).
