"Kai Lung is a wandering storyteller accused of treason--and not unlike Scheherazade of The One Thousand and One Arabian Nights, he must rely upon his silver tongue to escape conviction. With the help of beautiful Hwa Mei, who has the attention of evil Ming Shu, Kai tries to regain his freedom by spinning a series of entertaining tales that intrigue his captor. Laced with romance and adventure, spiced with fantasy and the supernatural, these stories will transport readers to a mandarin's court in ancient China."--Cover

Best Max Carrados detective stories by Ernest Bramah( Book )

4 editions published between 1972 and 2017 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sightless detective Max Carrados solved his first cases in Edwardian London, in the early days of the 20th century when the city was the beating heart of the vast British Empire. This collection contains the very best tales of the blind sleuth,10 adventures that range from his first challenge, "The Coin of Dionysus," to mysteries set during the World War I era and the early 1920s. Like Sherlock Holmes, Max Carrados debuted in The Strand magazine, and his stories rivaled those of the Baker Street detective in popularity. Since then, compilation volumes of the frequently anthologized tales have long been out of print and hard to find. This collection offers an excellent introduction to the suave private investigator whose deductive skills are surpassed only by his perceptive powers, which enable him to hear a heartbeat from across the room. Carrados' creator, Ernest Bramah, was one of the few authors in the early days of detective fiction who could combine physical and intellectual thrills with imagination and stylistic brilliance. Brimming with charm and humor, these vintage stories are utterly unique in the field of detective literature"--

Dr. Thorndyke is an early proponent of forensic investigation; and there is the blind gumshoe Mac Carrados; and gentleman thief Simon Carne; and Mr. Carnacki who is a detective of the occult. These men pit their wits against the best that London's underworld has to offer. Victorian London was a boon for crooks and a bane to Scotland Yard, whose job it was to keep the city safe from criminals
The eyes of Max Carrados by Ernest Bramah( Book )

22 editions published between 1923 and 2016 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Max Carrados is one of the most unusual detectives in all fiction. He is blind - and yet he has developed his other faculties to such an amazing degree that they more than compensate for his lack of sight.'Lose one sense and the others, touch, taste, smell, hearing improve ... with a little dedicated training.' Carrados can read a newspaper headline with the touch of his fingers, detect a man wearing a false moustache because 'he carries a five yard aura of spirit gum' and shoot a villain by aiming at the sound of his beating heart. Assisted by his sharp-eyed manservant, Parker, Carrados is the mystery-solver par excellence. Here is a collection of the best of Max Carrados, a set of stories featuring a series of baffling puzzles to challenge the greatest of detectives. They are written by Ernest Bramah with great wit, style and panache. This is vintage crime fiction at its best
