A Coin of Edward VIIby Fergus Hume
This early work by Fergus Hume was originally published in 1903 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. 'A Coin of Edward VII' is a detective novel of murder and romantic competition. Fergusson Wright Hume was born on 8th July 1859 in England, the second son of Dr. James Hume. The family migrated to New Zealand where Fergus was enrolled at Otago Boys' High School, and later continued his legal and literary studies at the University of Otago. Hume returned to England in 1888 where he resided in London for a few years until moving to the Essex countryside. There he published over 100 novels, mainly in the mystery fiction genre, though none had the success of his début work.

Even almost 100 years cannot dim the light of a great mystery story-teller!
A great whodunit.
Practicly everyone is a villein, the pacing was terrible, I was not impressed.
