DOWNLOAD ´ The Widening Stain This comic mystery set in the library of a university that bears a remarkable resemblance to Cornell was a big hit in 1942 going into three printings within a month What a shame that this is the authors only novel as he mainly published in the non fiction genreA really good book although a bit dated since it originally was published in the Interwar years and some of the stuff is downright silly but the plot is great the cast of characters is good and from page 1 it really kept my attention We end up with not one but two murders at a college library along with missing valuable books and we have a good cast of characters to choose from College professors librarians night watchmen etc Very good effort and a good read If you get a chance this one is a really enjoyable way to spend your evenings
