One Hundred Years in the Making

2020 marks one hundred years since the publication of The Cask by Freeman Wills Crofts (1879-1957), Ireland's greatest writers of crime fiction. Lauded by Agatha Christie as the Master of Alibis and praised by the contemporary press for his carefully constructed detective mysteries, Crofts is best remembered for Inspector Joseph French of Scotland Yard. In this collection, we present the previously uncollected cases of 'Soapy Joe' French: short stories where murderers are tripped up by a minor oversight, a thrilling radio mystery and a locked room stage play as well as a special bonus, French's most unusual investigation... But this volume also includes non-series short stories and the rarely seen two cases of Crofts' boy sleuth Robin Brand.

Crippen & Landru proudly present a centenary celebration of one of the giants of the Golden Age of crime and detective fiction. This new collection also includes an introduction by Tony Medawar and a comprehensive bibliography.
