Wait....these essays may look alike but they could not be more different from each other. Although they are all set in their own time the common ingredient is the authors themselves and their lifestyles. If not from the wrong side of the track then possibly a true criminal from the prison systems, a gambler, down and out rogue or the end result of alcoholism. They were the worst of the worst. They were the best of
the best. These ingredients formed the path which lead to great detective work
found in the William Shepard essays. With the enthusiasm and zeal of a young
Indiana Jones, Mr Shepard heads straight for the dig of a life time. How
fortunate for his students and for those of us privileged to have access to
these essays. Mr Shepard, you had me at "Samuel", held my hand through "poor
drunk devil", gave me a cabby ride into Baskervilles and buried me at Arlington.
What more could a person ask for? Brilliant piece of work
I am especially greatful for the exploration of Georges Simenon's Inspector Maigaret. I've read only one by this writer and will now go look for others. The coverage is even handed with fine examples as to why a particular author has stood the test of time.
Thank you Mr. Shepard for a clear and lucid introduction to classic detective fiction.

My summer looks as if I won't get much done except "meet" some of these new people. Thank you for the great introduction to them all, I really enjoyed reading and learning about them and looked forward to the time spent with them.
