The Mystery of a Hansom Cab

by Fergus Hume

Just finished it.
Extremely enjoyable mystery. Right from the beginning, readers will taste the mystery. Sometimes, it will seem to you that you know who the murderer is but it's not so simple :-)! A lot of twists...Enjoy :-)

Red Money

by Fergus Hume

I am a big fan of Hume. I have read many of his breath taking mysteries. So, when I began to read this mystery, I had expected a lot of "Humeish myterious aura" right from the beginning in the sttory. Unfortunately I didn't find it. The starting of the story was very slow, filled up with trivial boring dialogues and scenes. As the story moves on, it becomes a little bit interesting. The plot and the characters were poor, specially there were some gaps in character development of Mr Silver, Miss Greeby...
Hume has written much much much better mysteries than this. Please do not read this one -- this is the urge to the 1st time Hume readers from me.. Instead, read Hume's 'The opal serpent' 'The green mummy' ' the secret passage' ' The crowned skull'.. Hume is a great mystery writer, I don't want any 1st time Hume reader get a bad impression with him just by reading this one..He is above the standard of this mystery

The Rome Express

by Arthur Griffiths

I quite agree with Webstar on his opinion about the ending. Although, the gradual unfolding of the mystery was brilliant and dynamic, at the end when the underlying mystery suddenly began to reveal, it turned out to be a dull and mediocre ending.
The plot was creative enough, but I wish the writing had been creative like the plot. The writing was too descriptive, as if I was reading a text book.
