The Mystery of a Hansom Cab

4.5 10
by Fergus Hume
 

See All Formats & Editions

This unlikely first literary attempt by a young law clerk in Australia, published in Melbourne, became the best-selling mystery novel of the 19th century, better even than Sherlock Holmes.

In the dead of night, on a dark, lonely street in Melbourne, a cabby discovers that his drunken passenger has been murdered--suffocated with a chloroform saturated handkerchief.

He waits.

For a book written over 100 years ago, surprisingly readable, despite its antiquated style.
