38 editions published between 1903 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stephen Crane worked on The O'Ruddy while lying in bed dying from tuberculosis. His health had been failing for years, but Crane smoked cigarettes constantly and refused to give them up even as he was dying of a respiratory disease. He worked on the book at a feverish pace, owing to the fact that his health was worsening and his financial situation was dire. Crane hoped that if he could finish the book, both would improve. Time worked against him, and The O'Ruddy was completed by author Robert Barr following Crane's death. It tells a madcap romantic tale set largely in England that is vastly different than the gritty war stories of his early career

Despite the stiffness of his English contemporaries and the red tape of their legal system, however, Valmont continues to try to solve crimes. Going toe-to-toe with the likes of his crime-fighting rival, Sherlock Holmes, Valmont will break any rule necessary to catch his man--no matter what the stakes.
