Murder Among Talking Fools And Other Mystery Short Stories

246 pages3 hours


This second volume of hilarious, socially incorrect 'who done it' mystery short stories by Charles E. Schwarz is filled with unforgettable Dickensian characters and is a joy as the readers try to spot the villain. This is best illustrated by the title's story, Murder Among Talking Fools, where, in a bar, desperate lonely people engage in outrageous exaggerated fictions about themselves until one is shot. From first to last, the fast pace of these eight short stories never diminishes but keeps the reader page turning, laughing and guessing until the ending.
