The Nine Mile Walk
The Nicky Welt StorieseBook - 2015
Eight stories of murder, starring one of the most brilliant armchair detectives of all time from the author of the Rabbi Small Mysteries Before creating the widely popular Jewish sleuth Rabbi Small, Harry Kemelman authored a series of short stories featuring another quick-witted and wisecracking amateur sleuth: college professor Nicky Welt. Collected in The Nine Mile Walk, the Nicky Welt stories are a mix of ingenious logic puzzles and brilliant detective work, revealing that Kemelman has always been a master of the genre. In the collection's title story, Welt overhears a simple phrase: "A nine mile walk is no joke, especially in the rain," and from this evidence alone he not only figures out that a crime is about to be committed, but also realizes how to stop it. Whether chasing a kidnapper or puzzling over a dead man's chessboard, Welt is armed with the most powerful weapon on earth: the human mind.
