The Chronicles of Martin Hewitt

Martin Hewitt solves a series of baffling crimes in this thrilling installment of the adventures of London's cleverest detective An artist's work is vindictively vandalized, and the artist is found murdered in his smoking room. Gold bullion totaling £10,000 mysteriously vanishes from the ill-fated steamship Nicobar as it sinks en route to Plymouth. A clerk disappears from a large London bank along with a rather substantial amount of the company's money. A lunatic Frenchman, discovered beaten and bloody in the street, screams in terror when offered a loaf of bread. These dark occurrences have two things in common: The obvious solutions are not the solutions, and private detective Martin Hewitt is on the case. Not even the fabled Sherlock Holmes can best Hewitt's talent for disguise and his ability to uncover the small, telling clues missed by others. Narrated by his good friend Mr. Brett, the investigative chronicles of Martin Hewitt are entertaining exercises in the fine art of deductive reasoning. This ebook features a new introduction by Otto Penzler and has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
