The Albert Gate Mystery [NOOK Book]

Overview

Smith laughed decorously. He had not the slightest idea what his master meant, but if it pleased Mr. Brett to be jocose, it was the duty of a servant who knew his place to be responsive.
The barrister fully understood Smith's delicate appreciation--and its limits. He instantly noticed that the morning paper, instead of reposing next to his folded napkin, was placed out of reach on a sideboard, and that the eggs and bacon made their appearance ...

Overview

Smith laughed decorously. He had not the slightest idea what his master meant, but if it pleased Mr. Brett to be jocose, it was the duty of a servant who knew his place to be responsive.
The barrister fully understood Smith's delicate appreciation--and its limits. He instantly noticed that the morning paper, instead of reposing next to his folded napkin, was placed out of reach on a sideboard, and that the eggs and bacon made their appearance half a minute too soon.
As an expert swordsman delights to execute a pass en tierce with an umbrella, so did the cleverest analytical detective of the age resolve to amaze his servitor.
"Smith," he said suddenly, composing his features to their most severe cross-examination aspect, "I think the arrangement is an excellent one."

    Find an edited version

    Although some of the language and attitudes are somewhate dated, this is great story telling. The free versions are difficult to read, but when edited, its a page turner. Find a 99? version and read it. Would make a great movie. The lawyer/detective/hero is a forerunner to Lord Peter Wimsey. Written as a contempory piece it is now a 'historical novel' This author writes in several different genre, and this one is one of my favorites.
