The Charing Cross Mystery

by J.S. Fletcher

Another excellent Fletcher mystery. If you are a fan of British crime / mystery and have never read Fletcher, you owe it to yourself to give him a try.

The Million Dollar Mystery

by Harold MacGrath

The heiress of a mysterious and missing father is relentlessly pursued by an international criminal organization. She is protected by her father's faithful and capable butler, and a local newspaper reporter (the romantic interest). The book reads like old-time serialized cliffhanger pulp spliced together to make a novel - but in a good way. I found the book entertaining and good pulpy fun - and yes, someone does actually get tied to the railroad tracks.

Four-Day Planet

by H. Beam Piper

This is a well written blend of sci-fi and crime genres. I found the book entertaining - good plot, interesting characters, and plenty of action.

The Crowned Skull

by Fergus Hume

This is a very good mystery novel with intricate plot and strong characters - some of them quite nasty. The book thoroughly captured my attention.
