The Ivory Snuff Box

by Frederic Arnold Kummer

Fairly good espionage novella. The plot is contrived but entertaining. None of the characters really stand out, they are formulaic for the time. Persistent police, evil villains, and a woman in harm's way.

Equation of Doom

by Gerald Vance

Space pulp, with most of the standard elements - the down-on-his-luck space pilot, the scantily clad space-babe with a mission. Throw in evil aliens in pursuit and how can you go wrong? Nothing deep here, but a decent time killer if you're stuck in a waiting room.

The Talleyrand Maxim

by J.S. Fletcher

One of the best crime novels I have found on this site. Not really a "mystery", as the crimes are clearly portrayed. The four-way game between the intelligent criminal, peripheral criminals, pursuers, and victims is brilliantly written. I agree with the "6 star" comment, this book really stands out.

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.
