Van Dine is one of the greats of the Golden Age and sadly undervalued these days.

One of the classics in this genre but best read as individual short stories as the episodes can be a bit repetitive and long winded (but they were paid by the word in those days, weren't they). Viewed from the 21st century Hodgson's devices have a 'steam-punk- quality that's perhaps even more entertaining than intended.
