S. S. Van Dine, “The Benson Murder Case”


-Brilliant amateur sleuth Philo Vance solves a puzzling murder in one of the most influential detective novels of the twentieth century

The first novel in one of the most influential detective series of the early twentieth century, The Benson Murder Case (1926) introduces iconic amateur sleuth Philo Vance with a plot loosely based on the true-life murder of a famous bridge player. Its aristocratic Golden Age New York setting, obscure art cultural references, and devilishly complicated puzzle plot make this a must-read for nostalgia buffs and for anyone who appreciates a classic mystery.


S. S. Van Dine was the pseudonym of Willard Huntington Wright (1888-1939), an American art critic and author. He created the once immensely popular fictional detective Philo Vance, who first appeared in books in the 1920s, then in movies and on the radio.
