    Read & Download À The Benson Murder Case 104 The Benson Murder CaseMany years ago when I first read Julian Symons's wittily graceful if sometimes controversial history of crime fiction Bloody Murder 197274 I was sufficiently impressed by his excoriation of SS Van Dine's Philo Vance novels that I resolved never to touch one with a bargepole if I could possibly help it More recently however I

    Read & Download À The Benson Murder Case 104 The Benson Murder CaseI'd gathered before starting this one that SS Van Dine is an author people love or hate So far after reading this first book in the Philo Vance series I'm in the 'love' camp I enjoyed the witty writing and the de

    Read & Download À The Benson Murder Case 104 The Benson Murder CaseThis exceptionally annoying book is a chilling visit to the Old Boys' Network in New York before the war Philo Vance is a smug racist version of his British contemporary Lord Peter Wimsey complacently judging people by their social class gender ethnicity as well as the shape of their skulls while inflicting his taunting tedious company pronouncements upon hard working city employees The mystery per se is fairly interesting although nothing unusual; Vance Van Dine does take an unusual approach in looking at the case from sever

    Read & Download À The Benson Murder Case 104 The Benson Murder CaseThis is the first of the Philo Vance mystery series written in 1926 and it is definitely an acuired taste as are all the Vance books He is a rich dilettante who drops his gs is too effete for words and reminds you of Lord Peter Wimsey But there is something about him and the stories that Van Dine weaves that will hold the interest of the lover of the golden age mystery In this story a unpopular stockbroker is murdered in his elegant apartment and Vance helps and hindershis friend District Attorney John FX Markham and Sergeant Heath of the NYPD In the end Vance admits that he knew who the murderer was almost at once and was interested to see how the police went about catching the culprit There is not a lot of action here but there is a lot of dialogue usually snooty bon mots by Vance He is pretty insufferable but somehow you can't help but like him This was a very popular series during the 192030s but the sheen wore off as people who were in the middle of the great Depression did n

    Read & Download À The Benson Murder Case 104 The Benson Murder CaseIt is probably not fair to judge a classic by the standards of the books which will follow in its footsteps Unfortunately the fact that Van Dine could not rely on previous authors to avoid unnecessary errors does not make the read any enjoyableFrom the pages and pages detailing Vance's art collection to the sneering superiority with which the main character lavishes such gems as Evidence is irrelevant Every halfway competent criminal expects the police to look for it and will therefore avoid leaving any on the rubes the book is both padded and annoyingAdding insult to injury the criminal case that Vance uses to show his brilliance is so easy that any Agatha Christie
