"Excellent writing, puzzling crimes, and plausible and interesting detectives."―Saturday Review of Literature
Meet Oliver Armiston, a writer whose ingenious mysteries inspired so many copycat crimes that the authorities began paying him not to write. Together with Deputy "Man Hunter" Parr of the New York Police Department, Armiston takes on cases of fraud, murder, and other nefarious activities in these ten dryly witty, cleverly constructed whodunits.
Author Frederick Irving Anderson (1877–1947) was a star reporter for the New York World from 1898 to 1908 and a popular writer of crime fiction for The Saturday Evening Post and other popular magazines. Because so many of his superb detective stories were written for periodicals, they fell into undeserved neglect. Steeped in the evocative atmosphere of a bygone New York, this collection offers fiction that's seasoned with shrewd evaluations of crime and criminals and enhanced with a delightfully low-key sense of humor.
