C rippen and Landru's Lost Classics series continues to live up to its name. This 23rd volume in the series presents 14 endearing tales of smalltown detection from the pen of prolific science fiction author Biggle (1923–2002). As with his better known SF works, Biggle's stories of life in Borgville, a fictional Michigan community, emphasize vibrant characterization and gentle good humor. The title character, an adroit, insightful and irascible old man, delights in contradicting the local sheriff and in solving mysteries, ranging from burglary to murder. These puzzles, with their affectionate and intelligent portrayal of smalltown life, will remind mystery buffs of Ed Hoch's superb Sam Hawthorne impossible crime stories. (July)
