FROM THE PUBLISHER - A scarce omnibus volume that includes the full texts of three novels. In addition, this book features introductions written by the author for this volume, biographical sketches of both Van Dine and Philo Vance, Van Dine's rules for writing detective stories, and photographs of William Powell, Paul Lukas, Basil Rathbone, and others who have played Phlio Vance on the silver screen. THE SCARAB MURDER CASE (1930) - Detective Philo Vance's murder investigation takes place in a private home that doubles as a museum of Egyptology, and the solution depends in part on Vance's extensive knowledge of Egyptian history and customs, which enable him to sort through suggestions of godly vengeance and reveal the misdirections perpetrated by the real murderer. THE KENNEL MURDER CASE (1933) - Philo Vance investigates a complex locked room mystery. THE DRAGON MURDER CASE (1934) - A guest at an estate in northern Manhattan (Inwood Hill Park) dives into the swimming pool and disappears. His murder brings up references to a mythological dragon which is said to prey on the imprudent, but Philo Vance uses his knowledge of both dragons and criminals to demonstrate whodunnit.
