SYNOPSIS
Mr. Swartwout has the strongest claims to write a detective-story about the Boat Race, for he coxed the Cambridge crew to victory in 1930, And although this is his first essay in detective fiction, it possesses all the ingenuity one would expect from a young writer who, in addition to having published two books already, contributed to Punch and other papers, is responsible for the weekly cross-word puzzle in the Spsetator. Those, therefore, who enjoy a really good problem wiU certainly appreciate the one he has set them here.
