Synopsis

Philo Gubb is a small-town paperhanger who admires Sherlock Holmes and learns a deductive technique by correspondence course. Gubb differs from many mainstream fictional detectives in that he is not brilliant, nor egocentric, but he is persistent, good-natured, and occasionally displays common sense. Also in contrast, his work may be characterized by elaborate disguises that deceive nobody, theories that are overhauled at every clue, and the often unintentional solving of mysteries.
