Book review

Excerpt from Room Number 3: And Other Detective Stories

What door is that? You've opened all the others;: Why do you pass that one by?

Oh, that! That's only Number 3. A mere closet, gentlemen, responded the landlord in a pleasant voice. To be sure, we sometimes use it as a sleeping-room when we are hard pushed. Jake, the clerk you saw below, used it last night. But it's not on our regular list. Do you want a peep at it?

Most assuredly. As you know, it's our duty to see every room in this house, whether it is on your regular list or not.

All right. I haven't the key of this one with me. But - yes, I have. There, gentlemen! He cried, unlocking the door and holding it open for them to look inside. You see it no more answers the young lady's description than the others do. And I haven't another to show you. You have seen all those in front, and this is the last one in the rear. You'll have to believe our story. The old lady never put foot in this tavern.
