Publisher's Summary

Dr. Sam Hawthorne, a New England country doctor in the first half of the 20th century, was constantly faced by murders in locked rooms, impossible disappearances, and other so-called miracle crimes. More Things Impossible contains 15 of Dr. Sam's extraordinary cases solved between 1927 and 1931, including an impossible murder in a house that whispers; poisoning by a gargoyle on the courthouse roof; the case of the devil in the windmill; the houseboat that resembles the Mary Celeste; the affair of the vanishing Gypsies; stabbing in the locked cockpit of a plane in midair; a ghostly pirate in a lighthouse; and eight other ingenious riddles.

Edward D. Hoch is a legend of ingenuity in the world of mystery writing. Author of more than 800 short stories, winner of the Edgar Award, former president of the Mystery Writers of America, and contributor to every issue of Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine since 1973, Hoch is one of the great mystery writers of our time. As John Dickson Carr remarked, Satan himself would be proud of his ingenuity. And Crippen & Landru is proud to be Edward D. Hoch's publisher.
