Description

"They say that writers are really divided into two types; which exactly corresponds to cut-throats and poisoners. The cut-throats are those who, realising that the murder story must cut short the life, decide also to cut the story short. It is their pride as artists to deal in daggers; and startle the unfortunate reader with the stab of the short story." - G. K. Chesterton

Here lie 11 daggers that go straight to the heart of the matter; will the villain get away with it, or will the detective at hand foil them. This volume stretches its legs to the pre-war period which laid the foundation for the 'Golden' age to come.

The stories in order are:
WILLIAM le QUEUX - The Secret of the Foxhunter

ROBERT BARR - The Absent-Minded Coterie

JACQUES FUTRELLE - The Problem with Cell 13

GEORGE GRIFFITH - Five Hundred Carats

MAX PEMBERTON - The Ripening Rubies

CLIFFORD ASHDOWN - The Assyrian Rejuvenator

BARONESS ORCZY - The Woman in the Big Hat

L. T. MEADE & ROBERT EUSTACE - Madame Sara

WILLIAM HOPE HODGSON - The Horse of the Invisible

GUY BOOTHBY - The Duchess of Wiltshire's Diamonds

ARTHUR MORRISON - The Affair of the Avalanche Bicycle & Tyre Co. Ltd
