    Well narrated story I found on Librivox. I really enjoyed the unusual mystery and the careful layers of truth and assumption getting peeled back. Hearing a crime and then being unable to pinpoint the crime scene was really an interesting twist.

    Nice change of pace from the high velocity mystery/thrillers and horror novels I am always into. This one has no violence. and no profanities. . .Not to mention I love old time who-dun-its and this was an excellent one. Always fun to change it up once in a while. Glad I stumbled onto 'The Sheridan Road Mystery' and am looking forward to more of Paul Thorne's work. Nice change of pace from the high velocity mystery/thrillers and horror novels I am always into.

    A shot rings out in the night and the local policeman walking the beat at 2 a.m. comes upon a guy on Sheridan Road in his bathrobe. The only unusual part about this to me is a cop walking the beat in the middle of the night. I don't think they walk beats anymore - just drive around in their cars. Anyway, the man takes the policeman upstair and gives him a cock and bull story about not wanting to disturb his wife but a shot rang out upstairs. Except they get upstairs and there is no body.

Anyway, the man takes the policeman upstair and gives him a cock and bull story about not wanting to disturb his wife but a shot rang out upstairs. Except they get upstairs and there is no body. The ace detective is called in. From the description in the book, it would seem as though detective Morgan solves every tough case in Chicago. And, of course, he has to live right by the Cubs ball park. Not sure if it was called Wrigley Field then or just Cubs Park. Actually, it was a fairly interesting story. Nothing great, mind. But the fact that I could picture where things were taking place helps. As a native to Chicago and the 'burbs, I was all prepared to find geographical errors. No such thing. So the Thornes mounted the first hurdle. What I got a kick out of - and what does age the story - is they talking about catching the "motor bus" or taking the "electric train". They question whether the hills in Lincoln Park are man-made or real. I checked Wikipedia and Google and couldn't determine. Of course, since much of Lincoln Park is a former cemetery maybe the hills are just graves that didn't get moved. Actually, the discussion about cops taking the motor bus is the only part that really didn't ring that true for me. Or else times really have changed. Becuase I have talked to cops and they don't take public transportation generally - if they see a crime taking place on their way to official duty, they have to take care of the crime. And, then are late to their official duty. This is especially true if their duty is at the ball park. I have to admit, for a native, this book was a lot of fun.

    This is an average 1920s mystery, with not much outstanding about it. The initial crime and discovery are suitably mysterious, there is a gentle love interest, and plenty of back-and-forth action. It's heavy on dialogue and light on ratiocination, and it feels as though occasionally the author painted himself into a corner and then had to throw in another monkey wrench to jolt the story back into motion. Still, worth a read if you're a fan of the Golden Age mysteries. This is an average 1920s mystery, with not much outstanding about it.

    So whilst on patrol on Sheridan Road, an officer hears a gunshot, in seeking to investigate such, a man runs out of a nearby appartment saying that the shot was actually in the appartment above his... with the likes of March, Morgan and others, this mystery proves quite an interestingly entertaining one...

    Oh man, this mystery made me love the Thornes. This is one of my favorite mysteries of all time. Absolutely love this story and even visited a couple of the locations set in the book. Very good!
