A richly entertaining and exciting collection of mystery and detective stories from the golden age of crime fiction. This was a period when crimes were solved by the wit and ingenuity of the sleuth who only had his own intelligence to rely on rather than a battery of scientific devices and procedures employed by the modern crime solver. Within these pages you will meet such fascinating sleuths as G.K. Chesterton\'s Mr Pond, Ernest Bramah\'s remarkable blind detective, Max Carrados, who can read newspapers by allowing his sensitive fingers to run over the print, Craig Kennedy, \'the American Sherlock Holmes\' created by Arthur B. Reeve, and Jacques Futrelle\'s Professor S.F.X. Van Dusen, \'The Thinking Machine\' amongst others. Tales by Charles Dickens, Wilkie Collins, Arnold Bennett, Rudyard Kipling, Edgar Allan Poe and Arthur Conan Doyle will thrill and puzzle you.
