Since the beginning of his celebrated Magazine, Dr. Boli has delighted his readers with mysterious tales that lead them in unexpected directions. He believes that “unexpected” is a safe word to use in this context. Now here are half a dozen of the best in one volume, including the complete novella The Case of the Missing Case, which features Dr. Boli himself (though fictionalized in the interest of plausibility) as one of the primary characters.
If you have a mystery-lover on your Christmas list, Dr. Boli’s Tales of Mystery and Curiosity is the gift you have been looking for. If someone on your list hates and despises mystery stories, the book will make a suitably amusing gag gift. If someone on your list is illiterate, here is a book with several illustrations in it.
