Three mysteries under one cover! All three stories are told in the first person, namely by “Bertie” the Prince of Wales. All take place in the late 1800’s.
Bertie loves to play detective and hopefully come up with “who did it” before the authorities. The first story “Bertie and the Tin Man” remind me of Sherlock and Holmes. The second, “Bertie and the Seven Bodies” is very similar to Agatha Christie’s Ten Little Indians. The last story “Bertie and the Crime of Passion” pulls in Sarah Bernhardt as his sidekick! All three have humorous escapades by Bertie! I could not figure out who did it!
