Book Excerpt: 
. . .Let us glance at the lady who accepted his white-gloved hand, and who sprang alertly onto the platform beside him.

She was a woman bordering on the forties, with a face of masculine vigor, redeemed and effeminized, by splendid hazel eyes, the kindliest imaginable. Obviously, the lady was one who had never married, who despised, or affected to despise, members of the other sex, but who had never learned to hate them; who had never grown soured, but who found the world a garden of heedless children—of children who called for mothering. Her athletic figure was clothed in a "sensible" tweed traveling dress, and she wore a tweed hat pressed well on to her head, and brown boots with the flattest heels conceivable. Add to this a Scotch woolen muffler, and a pair of woolen gloves, and you have a mental picture of the second traveler—a truly incongruous companion for the first.

A typical Edwardian melodrama in which Gaston Max and Inspector Dunbar go underground to the opium dens of London to discover the secrets of Ho-Pin, he of the yellow claw, and how he is affecting the London hob nobs and how he inveigles them and others into his net.

In a very Gothic setting at tim...more

A fairly predictable detective novel. After dragging on too long in the beginning, the last 1/4 of the book was pretty good.

It's1915 and mystery writer Henry Leroux receives quite a shock. An unaccompanied woman he does not know demands entry into his apartments. Then she dies. Then the shock comes, as he finds that she is not wearing stockings! He nearly swoons at the sight of her bare ankle. The only clue to her dea...more

Yet another mysterious, suspenseful and complex tale from one of my favorite authors. Remember, this is the writer who invented Dr. Fu Manchu. He was able to create such fabulous descriptions of the area in which the tale takes place that the stories remain, to me, unforgettable. Very entertainin...more

Hyvä, kevyesti naposteltava jännäri. Lieviä yhtäläisyyksiä Poirotiin ja Holmesiin. Vanha suomennos ihanasti pullollaan vanhoja, nykyään pois käytöstä olevia sanoja.

Gaston Max from Paris comes to help the case, things begin to get crazy. Can they find out who Mr. King is and stop...more

Synopsis/blurb….

Then--his brows drawn together--he stooped to the body of the murdered woman. Partially raising the fur cloak, he suppressed a gasp of astonishment. "Why! she only wears a silk night-dress, and a pair of suede slippers!"

The elusive Oriental villain known as Mr. King masterminds an...more

This novel has an antiquarian almost "penny dreadful" feel about it. Gaston Max is a renowned French detective who has come to London on the trail of a Chinese syndicate who are setting up opium dens around the world. They have snared would be socialites and people who have acquired the opium hab...more
