“Ten more mystery stories by the gifted Czech novelist. . . . Offbeat. . . . tongue-in-cheek entertainment for aficionados of classic puzzlers in the Ellery Queen tradition―especially those who’ll also appreciate Skvorecky’s darkish, edgy texture.” ―Kirkus Reviews

A clergyman named Ronald A. Knox once set forth a set of rules for writing detective fiction. In ten new stories (two featuring Lieutenant Boruvka), a crime occurs that violates one of Father Knox's rules, thus serving up a double challenge: Who dunnit? and Which rule was broken?
