    A salient characteristic of these short stories is their unity. Each has an interesting theme that is developed in a logical fashion. For example, the theme of “The Sinister Violinist” is the difficulties faced by Lorenzo Martini as a result of a rumor that he had sold his soul to the devil to obtain his violin virtuosity. First, he is kidnapped by a Satanist cult. Then they plan to kill him. Then the authorities put him on trial because they think that he took part in the crimes committed by the cult. The story concludes with a clever closing paragraph that not only brings the story to a satisfactory conclusion, but also neatly focuses on the central theme. “The Wily Heirloom of John McDuff” has a lighter, more amusing theme, but it is equally unified. Its theme is the beneficent character of a star sapphire that John McDuff received as an heirloom. Whenever John wants to use it for evil purposes, it somehow manages to get lost, but when John reforms, it emerges into view. There are... More > fourteen stories in all. They are interesting and suitable for people of all ages.< Less
