Ravensdene Court

by J.S. Fletcher

I would rank Ravensdene Court number one or two of the Fletcher mystery novels that I have read. Very entertaining and highly recommended.

The Lurking Fear

by H. P. Lovecraft

If adjective overexposure can induce lurking fear, this book delivers. Not Lovecraft at his best, there are better choices on this site.

Sir Henry Morgan, Buccaneer

by Cyrus Townsend Brady

This is a bold and brutal novel of nautical piracy, treachery, revenge, and punishment. The romantic interest is well written and complements the story. Pirate and pulp fans - give it a try.

The Secret Passage

by Fergus Hume

This is an excellent mystery novel, the best Fergus Hume book I have read yet. Detective Jennings suspects nobody, yet at the same time suspects everybody. His interviews of potential suspects are brilliant. The book takes a while to get started - at the beginning many characters are rapidly introduced and not much happens. Persevere through the slow start and you will be rewarded.
