the case of the lower case letter - Jack Delany

The famous lexical semanticist Professor Edgar Nettleston had been found dead, a gunshot wound to the head.


This short story is based all around the famous lexical semanticist, the police believe that is is suicide so when his wife heads into the office of our nameless main character the whole journey begins by decoding the letter the wife believes is a suicide note.

With quick realisation and a smart main character in near to no time, the case is solved and the story wraps up nicely.

I love how there isn't a name to the main character so it becomes alot easier to put yourself in their shoes and see yourself playing that part. Although I love how the story unfolds it seems really easy to figure it all out. 

Its a 3 out of 5 for me just down to how easy it was to figure out and it's actually length. Id have preferred more detail and more information but what we get is good.
