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

Adventures of Martin Hewitt by Arthur Morrison( )

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? Would anyone else have taken seriously the fears of an eccentric old woman who swore thieves were after her most prized possession: a snuffbox fashioned from the actual wood of Noah's Ark? The Adventures of Martin Hewitt chronicles the inimitable detective's most fascinating cases, each of them solved by his uncanny ability to see past the obvious to the real mysteries that lie beneath. This ebook features a new introduction by Otto Penzler and has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices
