The Achievements of Luther Trant

by Edwin Balmer

Psychologist Trant has access to the very latest neurological research, and uses it to gain insight into clients and suspects. The author seems to have done his research and not filled the book with too obviously junky science. (Given the book came out in 1910.)

Mike Grost gave a thumbs up to one of the stories in this collection, "The Man Higher Up." That's reason enough to try this.

The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes

by Arthur Conan Doyle

This short story collection includes "The 'Gloria Scott,' " notable as the first case ever tackled by the young Sherlock Holmes. Also "The Musgrave Ritual" and "The Final Problem." * An excellent volume!

* Spoiler alert: if you don't know the plot of "The Final Problem," do not read the other reviews.

The Bartlett Mystery

by Louis Tracy

Could be subtitled, the perils of a poor, weepy little orphan girl. But Tracy is such a good writer, he can keep one interested in even this weak brew. Not much of a mystery. Good for readers who like a lot of romance.

Frances Kane's Fortune

by L.T. Meade

A novella and two short stories, not especially juvenile. The title tale is a really sweet romance. No longer so young woman's lost love returns and their happiness is threatened by her selfish father.
