"In the worst of London's East End slums, in an area called the Jago, young Dicky Perrott is used to a life of poverty, crime, and violence. Gang warfare is the order of the day, deaths are commonplace, and thieving the only way to survive." -- Back cover

Without sentiment, glorification, or preaching, but with complete detachment, Morrison describes the lives of charwomen, pimps, and workers drifting down to destruction; their shabby attempts to retain respectability; and the perpetual danger of slipping into a life of crime for those living in the mean streets of London's East End

The hole in the wall by Arthur Morrison( Book )

50 editions published between 1902 and 2015 in English and German and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though many critics and fans have drawn parallels between the work of Arthur Morrison and Charles Dickens, Morrison's take on inner-city poverty in turn-of-the-century London is much more bleak, gritty and realistic. The Hole in the Wall introduces an element of mystery, crossing over thematically with the detective stories featuring Martin Hewitt that Morrison also penned
Martin Hewitt, investigator by Arthur Morrison( Book )

43 editions published between 1894 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perplexing puzzles from the casebook of master sleuth Martin Hewitt. Headquartered in a modest office on the Strand, Martin Hewitt, a stout and genial former law clerk turned private investigator, is every bit the deductive equal of Sherlock Holmes. A true master of disguise with a mind as sharp as a freshly stropped straight razor, Hewitt possesses a familiarity with London's night streets and an easy rapport with members of the lower classes. In his capable hands, clues that were missed, misread, or disregarded by the local constabulary are reshaped to find the irrefutable solution to the most unsolvable of mysteries. Narrated by Hewitt's dearest friend, the esteemed journalist Mr. Brett, this collection recounts the great detective's most confounding cases. From a troubling series of robberies that occurred at the same residence over the course of several months to a locked-room "suicide" that was decidedly not self-inflicted, Hewitt bravely matches wits with England's most diabolical criminals. This ebook features a new introduction by Otto Penzler and has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices
The red triangle; being some further chronicles of Martin Hewitt, investigator by Arthur Morrison( Book )

26 editions published between 1903 and 2015 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic collection of mystery stories from Arthur Morrison features top-notch detective Martin Hewitt, whom one critic described as "a low-key, realistic, lower-class answer to Sherlock Holmes." In cases ranging from jewel theft to mistaken identities, Hewitt moves with ease among the working-class neighborhoods of turn-of-the-century England
The rivals of Sherlock Holmes( Visual )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

18 editions published between 1902 and 1911 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chronicles of Martin Hewitt by Arthur Morrison( Book )

17 editions published between 1895 and 2015 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Martin Hewitt solves a series of baffling crimes in this thrilling installment of the adventures of London's cleverest detective. An artist's work is vindictively vandalized, and the artist is found murdered in his smoking room. Gold bullion totaling £10,000 mysteriously vanishes from the ill-fated steamship Nicobar as it sinks en route to Plymouth. A clerk disappears from a large London bank along with a rather substantial amount of the company's money. A lunatic Frenchman, discovered beaten and bloody in the street, screams in terror when offered a loaf of bread. These dark occurrences have two things in common: The obvious solutions are not the solutions, and private detective Martin Hewitt is on the case. Not even the fabled Sherlock Holmes can best Hewitt's talent for disguise and his ability to uncover the small, telling clues missed by others. Narrated by his good friend Mr. Brett, the investigative chronicles of Martin Hewitt are entertaining exercises in the fine art of deductive reasoning.

Mr. Horace Dorrington, of the Dorrington & Hicks private inquiry agency, is a skilled investigator...though not what you might call a GOOD one. For he is an inveterate and unrepentant scoundrel, out to feather his own nest, never mind if he fleeces the criminal - or, indeed, his client - in the process. From nefarious activities on the high seas to shady dealings within the worlds of both horse- and bicycle-racing, from unearthing an old man's squirrelled-away money to hunting down a fabulous diamond, Dorrington charms his way through cases with always one eye on the prize

England's greatest crime-solver uses his superior intellect and genial charm to unmask thieves, murderers, and dangerous fanatics Esteemed journalist Mr. Brett rightly believes that his dear friend Martin Hewitt is the most insightful investigator of crimes in all of England. Who else could have so quickly connected a partial sheet of music--wrapped around a rock and tossed through a sitting room window--with an infamous decades-old robbery?

Readers were soon introduced to a new detective, Martin Hewitt, as presented by Arthur Morrison. Although initially different than Holmes, Hewitt also showed a number of interesting similarities as well ... For many years, Martin Hewitt has been mostly forgotten, except in some Sherlockian circles, w
