"How would you like a brief vacation in ideal surroundings--winter sports, pleasing company, and a veritable mansion in which to relax? I have just such an invitation for you, Vance." Philo Vance drew on his cigarette and smiled. We had just arrived at District Attorney Markham's office in answer to a facetious yet urgent call. Vance looked at him and sighed. "I suspect you. Speak freely, my dear Rhadamanthus." "Old Carrington Rexon's worried." "Ah!" Vance drawled. "No spontaneous goodness of heart in life. Sad. So, I'm asked to enjoy myself in the Berkshires only because Carrington Rexon's worried. A detective on the premises would soothe his harassed spirits. I'm invited. Not flatterin'. No." "Don't be cynical, Vance." "But why should Carrington Rexon's worries concern me? I'm not in the least worried." "You will be," said Markham with feigned viciousness. "Don't deny you dote on the sufferings of others, you sadist. You live for crime and suffering. And you adore worrying. You'd die of ennui if all were peaceful." "Tut, tut," returned Vance. "Not sadistic. No. Always strivin' for peace and calm. My charitable, unselfish nature." "As I thought! Old Rexon's worry does appeal to you. I detect the glint in your eye." "Charming place, the Rexon estate," Vance observed thoughtfully. "But why, Markham, with his millions, his leisure, his two adored and adoring offspring, his gorgeous estate, his fame, and his vigor--why should he be worrying? Quite unreasonable."

The detective story is a kind of intellectual game. It is more-it is a sporting event. And the author must play fair with the reader. He can no more resort to trickeries and deceptions and still retain his honesty than if he cheated in a bridge game. He must outwit
