An English author who gained fame with a series of novels about a raffish but lovable thief named Arthur J.

In Dead men tell no tales, Hornung spins a yarn that starts out with a love affair that blossoms on a boat journey, but soon turns deadly. A must-read for lovers of classic detective fiction.
