The House Without a Key

Foreword Review

If youve ever wondered whether the old Charlie Chan books by Earl Derr Biggers were better than the series of B-movies cranked out in the 1930s, The House Without a Key (Academy Chicago, 978-0-89733-579-9), first published in 1925, provides an answer: OLD-FASHION MYSTERY FUN, not as stereotyped as you might expect.

Dick Cady
