Tales of the Black Widowers is the first book in Isaac Asimov s Black Widowers mystery series I ve read one other but wanted to start from the beginning I ve enjoyed many of Asimov s Sci Fi series some of which crossed over into mysteries The Black Widowers stories are strictly mysteriesThe Black Widowers are six acuaintances who meet once a month at the Milano Restaurant for dinner and to have friendly often raucous discussions Each night one of the members brings along a guest who is interrogated and regularly presents a mystery that the six members discuss and try solve the mystery In the background and the person who brings everything together is their waiter HenryThe six main characters are all curmudgeonly Thomas Trumbull a code analyst if I ve got it correct Geoffrey Avalon patent attorney Emmanuel Rubin noted writer and butt of the others jokes and acuaintance of Isaac Asimov James Drake organic chemist Mario Gonzalo an artist who draws characters of each guest and Roger Halsted high school math teacher who is trying to turn each chapter of the Iliad and maybe the Odyssey into a limerickThe book contains 12 stories with an afterword for each one with Asimov s comments on when it was originally published original title and sometimes the inspiration for the story I d call the mysteries cozy as nobody is hurt and the people never leave the restaurant with one notable exception After some loud joking and discussion the group settle down to dinner and then while they relax over coffee one of the members interrogates the guest and gets him to tell the story that the members will weigh in on At the end of each story the group after trying to solve the mystery will defer to Henry who gathers in their clues and uestions and provides a solutionYou d think the format would grow old pretty uickly but actually each story is interesting and uniue and the characters are funny and uirky It makes for a short entertaining story I ve got another of the books on my shelf and look forward to continuing to have dinner with this little group 4 stars
