Description
In this trio of novelettes from 1943, Asey Mayo arrives on the scene in three mystery stories. "The Third Murderer" has Asey discovering the body of an actress who has been stabbed and then stuffed into a Dutch oven. In "Murder Rides the Gale," Asey, amid a nor'easter, comes upon the disappearance of 22 schoolgirls and their French teacher; and PI Asey solves the murder if an astronomer who has been struck dead by a meteorite—one from his own collection—in "The Stars Spell Death." The adventures of handyman-turned-sleuth Asey (formally Asa) Mayo are overflowing with the flavor of Cape Cod—hardly surprising, since Phoebe Atwood Taylor was the first member of her family who wasn't born on the Cape in 300 years, but unusual for crime fiction of the day.

"Taylor's droll period whodunits are a special treat, thanks to the Codfish Sherlock, Asey Mayo, a salty Cape codger who entertains summer visitors by solving picturesque crimes."—NYTimes
