    Redmond's Delicate Question

    The reader does not find out until the denouement of this tale that Lord Robert St. Simon really is a bachelor. Several other tales have titles with similar quirks, including "A Case of Identity", and some even betray the identity of the criminal. In the present case, is the title appropriate or does it take the fun away by providing an unintended clue to the solution?
