Publisher Description

Volume 9 of the British Mystery Multipacks is devoted to a forgotten mystery franchise, The Max Carrados Mysteries. Ernest Bramah’s mastermind detective, a brilliant criminologist who happens to be blind, was originally featured in The Strand magazine alongside Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories. Detective Carrados may not have had the longevity of Holmes, but in the Golden Age of Detective Fiction he often outsold Doyle’s super-sleuth and received billing over Holmes in many Strand issues. 


Brash is an interesting author, one who had success across multiple genres, including fantasy and science fiction. He was influential on George Orwell who said, of The Max Carrados Mysteries, that they “are the only detective stories since Poe that are worth re-reading.” 


British Mystery Megapack Volume 9 presents the following Max Carrados mysteries: 


The Coin of Dionysius 

The Knight’s Cross Signal Problem 

The Tragedy at Brookbend Cottage 

The Clever Mrs. Straithwaite 

The Last Exploit of Harry the Actor 

The Tilling Shaw Mystery 

The Comedy at Fountain Cottage 

The Game played in the Dark
