The Mystery of the Four Fingers [NOOK Book]

Overview

Any reasonable summary of this book's plot would give away too much of the mystery it describes, so suffice it to say that it is a definite 'page-turner.'

Overview

Any reasonable summary of this book's plot would give away too much of the mystery it describes, so suffice it to say that it is a definite 'page-turner.'

Right from the first chapter, when we learn about the mysterious recently-turned-millionaire Fenwick being strangely horrified by what he sees in a small silver box he finds on his dinner-table, we learn that he may not be what he appears to be, and that his lovely daughter may have a mysterious past of her own.

The main characters of the story are a wealthy lawyer named Jim Gurdon, and his world-travelling, tanned, adventurous friend Gerald Venner, who amazes Gurdon and the readers with his own story about the alleged millionaire Fenwick, his daughter, and some other noteworthy characters.

Meet the Author

Frederick Merrick White was an English author who was born in 1859. He wrote a number of novels and short stories under the name Fred M. White, including the six Doom of London science-fiction stories, in which various catastrophes beset London. They include a massive killer smog, diphtheria, and a sudden and deep winter with paralyzing snow and ice. Not exactly the uplifting types of stories.

Starting out at age 43, he wrote almost 90 books (novels and short stories) in the following 34 years (up until 1930). A list of his writing shows that he published 8 stories in 1908, one of which is the instant book, and 5 in 1930, the last year any data on him appears.

Other than his prolific science-fiction and mystery writing ability this publisher was unable to discover anything else about Mr. White, giving rise to what may be the best mystery that Mr. White has created.

The only information available about him is the fact that he was born in 1859, plus a list of the books he has written. Nothing else. No date of death. No details of his life. Every source our research department located merely listed his life statistic as "1859 - ? ."

Coincidentally, White was born in the same year as Arthur Conan Doyle, and White's writing appeared in the Strand Magazine, most probably in competition with Sherlock Holmes.

It may be theorized that he was writing under an assumed name, or that he is still alive, but if that is so, he would rank right up there with Elvis Presley, for whom there is at least a periodic 'sighting.'
