. . . and the Walls Came Tumbling Down

By Hugh Pentecost.
Crippen & Landru.
2008. 236 pages.
Collection: 15 stories.
S. T. Karnick reviews one of Crippen & Landru's Lost Classics on his website (THE AMERICAN CULTURE, December 12, 2008): 
[Hugh] Pentecost's concentration on characters' motives reveals much about the individuals involved and continually encourages us to judge the morality of their choices. That is what good detective stories do, and it is what makes Hugh Pentecost an exemplary mystery writer and one whose stories and novels are still well worth reading.
