A mix

The quality of these stories varies, as is usual with collections. The narration is passable. None is outstanding except the Naval Treaty, which is found in Sherlock Holmes collections. Still, I recommend the collection to those who can't get enough of classically written mysteries. For those who just want a good read, probably not.
