Winner of the MWJ Award of 1962. I found this book frustrating to read at first, because it was hard to see where the story was leading us. I started enjoying it more about halfway through and the end was quite good.
This book contains two of the most famous novels by Edogawa Rampo: the Black Lizard and the Boy Detectives Club. I enjoyed both, but I found the Boy Detectives Club to be more engrossing and exciting, even though it is written for children.
