The Deaves Affair

by Hulbert Footner

A young man intervenes to protect an eccentric elderly gentleman during a public disruption. He soon finds himself employed by the old man's family as both bodyguard and investigator in a blackmail case. A decent mystery yarn intertwined with an extremely heavy romantic interest.

The Four Just Men

by Edgar Wallace

I really enjoyed it - great plot, plenty of suspense. Unfortunately some of the characters and their dialog are dry as chalk dust, so 4 stars instead of 5.

The Kidnapping of Madame Storey

by Hulbert Footner

Crime fiction short stories / novellas in which Madame Rosika Storey and her assistant Bella Brickley tackle some difficult cases. I liked Footner's _The Almost Perfect Murder_ better - livelier characters and more interesting plots.

The Almost Perfect Murder

by Hulbert Footner

A collection of crime fiction short stories / novellas featuring Mme. Rosika Storey and her resourceful assistant Bella Brickley. Mme. Storey unravels complex cases with thorough investigation and an understanding of human nature - you won't find any miraculous Holmes-like solutions here. Bella's role is primarily as narrator, but shows she has plenty of brains and courage when sent out to do dangerous research on her own. Highly recommended, 5 stars.
