THE MYSTERY OF THE FIDDLING CRACKSMAN

 

 Billy Hemple has a question: why are the residences of men named John (no middle name) Craig being broken into? And why does the burglar not steal anything? Instead he breaks out a fiddle and plays a mournful dirge—to a locked safe! Billy’s got a special reason for needing to solve the mystery—the woman he wants to marry is the daughter of the only man left in Chicago whose name is John (no middle name) Craig! Even Harry Stephen Keeler has a hard time wrapping up all the loose ends of this labyrinthine webwork novel.
