Leopold in these 24 stories is the head of homicide, later to become the depart­ment of violent crimes. Because he is given to interior musing, we learn the workings of the mind of a thoughtful de­tective. Showing Leopold’s mind, Hoch develops nuances of character rare in mystery stories. “The House by the Ferris” poses a typical Hoch problem. Ancient crone Stella Gaze predicts that four men will die—by earth, air, fire, and water. Leo­pold is called in when one man drowns, is called again when another burns. The crimes seem to have been concocted by a witch.
