During the 1890s, the heyday of Sherlock Holmes, Martin Hewitt ranked among England's most popular fictional detectives. A favorite of readers of The Strand and other magazines, Hewitt returns in this collection of nine of his best cases. Hewitt enters the scene in "e;The Lenton Croft Robberies,"e; in which he is called upon to solve three successive jewel robberies whose only clues are three half-burnt wooden matches. In "e;The Case of the Dixon Torpedo,"e; he must figure out how mechanical drawings for a new weapon could have vanished from an office that no one entered or left. In other cases, Hewitt examines the theft of a valuable cameo from a locked desk in a guarded house, the plunder of gold bullion from the hold of a sinking ship, and the disappearance of a will right from under the noses of the dying man's family. The final four stories concern a suicide that may be a murder, a marital case that isn't as simple as it seems, a clue to a treasure in a piece of music, and the robbery of a sacred relic. Novel and imaginative in subject matter, meticulously plotted, and smoothly written, these stories will captivate mystery lovers.

Martin Hewitt, Investigator

Martin Hewitt, Investigator

Author: Arthur Morrison Format: eBook Release Date: 27/10/2015

Perplexing puzzles from the casebook of master sleuth Martin Hewitt Headquartered in a modest office on the Strand, Martin Hewitt, a stout and genial former law clerk turned private investigator, is every bit the deductive equal of Sherlock Holmes. A true master of disguise with a mind as sharp as a freshly stropped straight razor, Hewitt possesses a familiarity with London's night streets and an easy rapport with members of the lower classes. In his capable hands, clues that were missed, misread, or disregarded by the local constabulary are reshaped to find the irrefutable solution to the most unsolvable of mysteries. Narrated by Hewitt's dearest friend, the esteemed journalist Mr. Brett, this collection recounts the great detective's most confounding cases. From a troubling series of robberies that occurred at the same residence over the course of several months to a locked-room ';suicide' that was decidedly not self-inflicted, Hewitt bravely matches wits with England's most diabolical criminals. This ebook features a new introduction by Otto Penzler and has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

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 musicwrapped around a rock and tossed through a sitting room windowwith 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. This ebook features a new introduction by Otto Penzler and has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

Chronicles of Martin Hewitt

Chronicles of Martin Hewitt

Author: Arthur Morrison Format: eBook Release Date: 27/10/2015

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 GBP10,000 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.

Though many critics and fans have drawn parallels between the work of Arthur Morrison and Charles Dickens, Morrison's take on inner-city poverty in turn-of-the-century London is much more bleak, gritty and realistic. The Hole in the Wall introduces an element of mystery, crossing over thematically with the detective stories featuring Martin Hewitt that Morrison also penned.

Learn to read and write, learn all you can, learn cunning, spare nobody and stop at nothing....Do your devilmost...for the Jago's got you! Dicky Perrott, growing up in the notoriously criminal enclave of the Jago, listens and learns. Compelled by his family's circumstances to provide for his mother and siblings, he sharpens his skills as a boy thief. Along the way, he navigates the Jago's topsy-turvy ethics, vacillating between the rival messages of his mentors, a devious local fence and a righteous slum priest. Relentless in its bleakness and violence, A Child of the Jago captures the desperate struggle for survival in 1890s East London. This Broadview Edition provides the literary, socio-historical, and philosophical contexts vital to readers' understanding and appreciation of the novel. Historical appendices include materials on eugenics, hooliganism, women's sweated labour, cultural philanthropy, and the debate over the novel's accuracy.

'The Jago had got him, and it held him fast.' In the worst of London's East End slums, in an area called the Jago, young Dicky Perrott is used to a life of poverty, crime, and violence. Gang warfare is the order of the day, deaths are commonplace, and thieving the only way to survive. At first Dicky dreams of becoming a High Mobsman - one of the aristocrats of Jago crime - but the efforts of Father Sturt to improve conditions offer him a different path. Dicky's journey takes him through a savage but colourful community of pickpockets and cosh-carriers, where the police only enter in threes, and where murder erupts with an unusual horror and intimacy. Morrison's portrayal of the Victorian underclass and its underworld drew attention to the bleak prospects for children living in such surroundings, and it is a classic of slum-fiction. In this edition Peter Miles provides a rich contextual background to the creation of the novel, and the social debates to which it contributed.

These stories are a brilliant evocation of a narrow, close-knit community, that of the streets of London's East End. First published in 1894, Arthur Morrison prefaced his collection with a list of the common misconceptions about the East End of his day, all of which he felt ignored the human element. Having lived and worked there, he knew that East Enders were not a race apart, but ordinary men and women, scraping by perhaps, but neither criminals nor paupers. Here he chronicles their adventures and misadventures, their wooings and their funerals, with sympathy, humour and a sense of both the tragedies and the comedies to be found in the 'mean streets', from Lizerunt's disastrous marriage to Scuddy Lond's plausible but imperfect conversion and Squire Napper's quickly dispersed fortune.

In his acclaimed and final East End novel, Arthur Morrison returns to a slightly earlier period than that of Tales of Mean Streets and A Child of the Jago, the 1860s and 1870s.
