Format: Paperback
as a child i had this book, and read it again and agian as each little 'episode' was filled with detail and quirk. it had genre trappings a compelling firs person style that made it an exotic time capsule of nowhere pulpland. it made my mind keen as i often kicked myslef for not picking up little 'clues'. it taught me to be observant and some little details about an alien adult world i had no experince of and wnated to know more about. i was inspired to read more as a means of learning, quite sub-consciously, as i thought i was seeking the thrills i had gained from such an innocuous little book.

By John M. Ford TOP 500 REVIEWER on 5 Jun. 2011
Format: Paperback
Donald Sobol is the author of all of those Encyclopedia Brown short mysteries I enjoyed as a kid. These short mysteries are in very much the same style. Each one is a page or two of text in which some detail, often a slip of the tongue by the guilty party, can be used to solve the mystery. For those who don't get it--or who do but want to be sure--the solution is given on the last page in upside-down text.

A sampling of mysteries:

In "The Case of the Dentist's Patient" Dr. Haledjian sends a killer to the electric chair for killing someone in a dentist's chair.

In "The Case of the Book Contract" Dr. Haledjian unmasks an imposter passing himself off as an accomplished author.

In "The Case of the Marathon Runner" Dr. Haledjian matches wits with a cheating marathon runner.

In "The Case of the Three Cucumbers" our recurring sleuth identifies the lookout working for a gang of bank robbers.

In "The Case of the Frightened Playboy" a new maid accidentally reveals too much about her intentions.

This is a fun book which encourages attention to details and careful reasoning. It is really three books in one, collecting stories from Two-minute Mysteries, More Two-Minute Mysteries, and Still More Two Minute Mysteries. I bought it as a Christmas present for my daughter Katie a few years ago and we have both enjoyed it.

I remember reading this book when I was about twelve years old. I couldn't solve any of the mysteries at the time, which probably says more about me than I'd rather reveal. More than forty years on, older and wiser, whether I like it or not, they're actually all pretty easy to suss out. Trying to convince myself that I was just too distracted when I was younger.

These stories are much easier and more interesting than the five minute ones that seem to go too long we use this at dinner parties with friends
