This slim volume of eight occult detective tales written by the remarkably prolific husband and wife team of Claude and Alice Askew has little to recommend it These adventure stories written for the Edwardian magazines benefit from the excellent popular literary climate of the time they are clear in style well crafted in plot and thoroughly professional ideal for a lady or gentleman who wishes something to read on the train They lack imagination however delivering few thrills and no real chills at all Holmesian psychic investigator Vance and his Watson Dexter become friends at a fishing lodge share a few stories and solve a handful of cases together cases which may or may not have a supernatural explanation I ll remember little from this collection except the general impression that the Edwardian man was stuffy and boring and the Edwardian woman a potential conflagration of banked fires I bet I have Alice to thank for this impression not Claude
