Running Sands

by Reginald Wright Kauffman

Old marries naive and young. Very well written, liked it much.

Cruise and Captures of the Alabama

by Albert M. Goodrich

For the naval interested reader, this is a condensed account of a successful raider, from when there was neither radio nor much telegraph. It has important facts from the captain's diary augmented with all other things that became known afterwards. Not to be missed if you're into mil history.

File No. 113

by Emile Gaboriau

Although an excellent read in the first half, I couldn't stand the improbable and contrived events in the second half, which was more like a Wilki Collins mystery. It may well be your fit, and it's worth a try.

The Thinking Machine

by Jacques Futrelle

Futrelle's Thinking Machine short stories, while distributed in a dozen titles here on manybooks, are quite worth the download. There may be a few with improbable events, but in general they are problem-solving detective stories in the best Sherlock Holmes tradition.
