Van Dines The Kennel Murder Case (1933).This edition includes an introduction to Hildegarde Withers, a filmography, and a bibliography.Stuart Palmers detective tales usually feature either Hildegarde Withers, a spinster sleuth, or, less frequently, Howie Rook, the least hard boiled of all private eyes.

Palmers tales are generally comic in tone, but he is not a member of the farce school of Phoebe Atwood Taylor. Rather Palmers works adhere to the classical detective paradigms of the intuitionist school, of such writers as Agatha Christie and Ellery Queen. Reading Palmers best works show why this school is so well loved: watching Hildegarde Withers unravel The Riddle of the Black Museum (1946) is just plain fun. There is a detective, a mystery, and an ingenious solution, and one experiences a strong desire to read more stories like this.
