The Gray Mask

by Charles Wadsworth Camp

Some interesting detective cases, individual stories, loosely linked as if originally serialized.

Garth, a brilliant young detective, is a victim of unrequited love. The object of his affection is Nora, the chief inspector\'s daughter. Nora is an interesting, capable, and dangerous character and she has strong roles in the cases. The only downside of Nora\'s presence is that you must wade through long digressions describing how poor Garth is pining away for love and how concerned he is for Nora\'s safety.

This is a good read, but if Garth would go out and find himself a girlfriend and get on with his detecting, I could have given more than 3 stars.

'Co. Aytch' - Maury Grays, First Tennessee Regiment

by Sam R. Watkins

Anecdotes from Civil War battles as experienced by a Confederate soldier. Sometimes brutal and horrible, sometimes moving, inspirational, and spritual, sometimes humorous. This is definitely not your typical history book.

An excerpt from Wikipedia on author Sam R. Watkins:

"Of the 120 men who enlisted in “Company H” in 1861, Sam Watkins was one of only seven alive when General Joseph E. Johnston’s Army of Tennessee surrendered to General William Tecumseh Sherman in North Carolina April, 1865."

The Stowmarket Mystery

by Louis Tracy

Barrister / detective Reginald Brett requires all his considerable powers of observation and deduction in this excellent murder mystery. Strong characters, lots of action, highly recommended.

The Albert Gate Mystery

by Louis Tracy

Foreign emissaries murdered, priceless diamonds stolen, and a high ranking member of the British Foreign Office has gone missing. What does it all mean? Reginald Brett, barrister and detective, is on the case. I liked it - lots of action and very entertaining. Things unravel a bit during a goofy ending, so 4 stars instead of 5.
