I've sold many Tracy books over the years but never read one. This sounds very much like the kind of thing that was in vogue for decades: Fletcher, Oppenheim, Wallace and their imitators. I had a copy of THE ALBERT GATE MYSTERY and kept it for a long time only because of the hookah on the cover. I can be a shallow book collector sometimes. ;^)

It's a fun romp, John - I must admit it's my first Tracy book, but it definitely has some entertainment value. Hard to find original books in print (or even re-issues, other than public-domain squatters).
