by Ellis Parker Butler,
$3.99 ebook; $14.95 paperback

Not only is Mr. Philo Gubb a professional wallpaper hanger, he’s also a graduate of the Rising Sun Detective Agency’s Correspondence School of Detecting. As well as being a book-trained master of disguise, Philo is pretty good at solving crimes. Here are 17 of Philo’s most successful cases, including “The Eagle’s Claw,” “The Un-Burglars,” “The Progressive Murder,” and “The Anonymous Wiggle.” Philo Gubb is a new kind of “deteckative” that you’ll love. “Funny and clever,” says Byron Rupert McCafferty, pop culture guru, Online Critics Corner.
