Whether or not this be a "true story," as the preface states, it is good enough to need no apology for its existence. An unusually lucid and unsensational narrative of a murder and the final discovery of its perpetrator, it offers a study in the value of "circumstantial evidence" that students of the law and of human nature ought to find interesting. The story is told simply and compactly, without any of the trickery of the ordinary "detective story." A Master Hand has a professional touch.
