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.
