Josh Pachter, ed. - The Man Who Solved Mysteries

This is Crippen & Landru's second collection by William Brittain. The first (The Man Who Read Mysteries) included all of the "Man Who Read...." stories and a few stories about the logical and deductive science teacher, Mr. Strang.

Our second collection (of a planned three volumes) contains the rest of the Mr. Strang stories, all 25 of them. The collection has an introduction by Josh Pachter (as did the first collection) and an afterword by one of the Brittain children.

William Brittain continues to be one of our best-selling and fan favorite authors.
