Martin Hewitt, Investigator Synopsis

The FLAME TREE COLLECTABLE CRIME CLASSICS are chosen to create a delightful and timeless home library of classic crime and mystery thrillers. Each stunning unabridged edition features deluxe cover treatments, ribbon markers, luxury endpapers and gilded edges. The hugely popular consulting detective Sherlock Holmes inspired a number of late nineteenth century fictional detectives, with Arthur Morrison's Martin Hewitt one of the most successful. Well-presented and cheerful, this shrewd PI well befits his place among the greatest sleuths in literature. Gathered here are twelve of his adventures, including 'The Lenton Croft Robberies' and 'The Case of the Dixon Torpedo', showing the charming protagonist at work with his loyal sidekick, Brett. A specially commissioned biography of the author and a glossary of Victorian and Literary terms make this new edition essential for all classic crime fans!
