Publisher: Otto Penzler Books, 1993. The Winter Murder Case (1939) is a Philo Vance novella that S. S. Van Dine intended to expand into his twelfth full length book, a project cut short by his death. The Winter Murder Case seems especially similar to the B mystery movies of the 1930s, a cross between Van Dine's usual style and the film style.

Reviews about Banking on Death (Otto Penzler's Classic American Mystery Library) (7):
Neol
Have been a JP Thatcher fan for years and a devoted Kindle user since I first discovered them ... BUT as a retired English teacher and former newspaper editor, am really distressed by all of the errors found in these books. Will continue to purchase them, but wish I could make the corrections as I am reading so that I would have a corrected version when I choose to reread them.

This series was a new discovery for me, even though the books are long out of print. Emma Lathen is the clever nom de plume of a pair of authors, whose contributions to the whole are so well interlaced that I am unable to distinguish between the two voices. The book is a mystery in the form of the golden age classics. Well plotted, good characters, interesting sleuth, with many humorous and witty lines. I intend to read the whole series.

I am a long - time Emma Lathen fan and had been waiting for years for Kindle versions to come out. But this new series is a strange one. The format looks as if it is a children's book. And the content is wrong. The title says "Bankng on Death", the first John Thatcher mystery, but the story in it is a totally different one. Its true title is "Come to Dust",

2017-06-13 I have been checking periodically and finally the book appears to contain the correct contents, or at least the sample does. The "Banking On Death" on my Kindle is about a college admission committee and its missing member; the sample I just looked at on the Amazon site contains the story about a Snyder family, which is the correct version.

My Aunt introduced me to her in the 1980s when I was looking for a new series. The protagonist is a SVP of banking at a giant NY bank back n the day when NYC controlled everything. John Thatcher gets roped in to save the investment of his bank. The causes seem obviously emotional but always come down to money. He sniffs it out with the help of his wonderful cronies, playboy but good banker Charles, straight laced Everett, young Nichols, and secretary Miss Corsa who keeps everything straight. His bosses the Pres and Chairman are busy being social and useless, but great fun. A much under rated series. When you find ne, let me know!
Kelerius
I enjoy these books but would enjoy them more if they had been proofread before being published. Simply doing OCR is not enough. Correct the many errors and reissue.

I found the plot slow and plodding with little character development. I could not visualize people or places due to lack of description. This was not an intriguing or interesting mystery.

Emma Lathen's John Putnam Thatcher print/ Kindle book series is ten-star from beginning to end as far as I'm concerned.

But this is about the Audible Audio editions. My joy at finding the series produced as audiobooks quickly deflated when I found that the fuzzy (synthesized?) music doesn't just begin and end the book -- or chapters-- every book is infested with vapid semi-musical sounds and odd noises ("effects," according to the vandals that produce them) nonstop. Not one moment escapes. The slow, rather inflectionless reading might be tolerable if one were given a chance to listen.

I listened to bits of six or eight of the books in the series. No escape -- they all were afflicted with execrable soundtracks. Shame on you, Audible!
4 stars for the story, 0 stars for the editing. Wrong title. Reading on my kindle there are hyphenated words every - where. No matter how I change the settings I can't get the splits to match with the ends of the lines. Misspellings, wrong words, and left out portions of sentences. As much as I have been longing for John Thatcher on kindle, this is not the way to do it. I'll read it with kindle unlimited but no way will I buy it.
