Does premeditated crime spread a baleful aura which affects certain highly-strung temperaments just as the sensation of a wave of cold air rising from the spine to the head may be a forewarning of epilepsy or hysteria? John Trenholme had cause to think so one bright June morning in 1912, and he has never ceased to believe it, though the events which made him an outstanding figure in the «Strange Case of Mortimer Fenley,» as the murder ...

     If two detectives ever needed a TV series on PBS - it is Superi

     If two detectives ever needed a TV series on PBS - it is Superintendent Winter and Mr. Furneaux. They are often
    referred to in London as "Big Un" and "Little Un" from the Yard - as in Scotland Yard. They are two very different
    men - one French and the other English, one is tall and strong while the other is a very slight man, and one looks
    like a policeman and the other looks like an artist. Together they are a formidable team and masterful in catching
    criminals. In this book from 1919, the banker Mortimer Fenley has been murdered on his front door step. He has
    two sons who are also very different men and they are acting very suspicious. The sons are also in competition
    for the their father's young ward - a lovely woman who just happens to be very rich. The book concerns itself with
    solving not just the murder, but two crimes involving Mortimer Fenley. Louis Tracy explains the case with this
    quote, "... but seldom indeed do the Fates contrive that death and love and high adventure would be so closely
    bound". I can't sum up this book any clearer for any interested reader. Enjoy!

    Excellent Winter and Forneaux murder mystery

    Detectives Winter and Forneaux are called in to solve the murder of a wealthy banker, and must sort through the obvious clues to find the evidence that might prove the murderer to have been in two places at once. Full of action, romance, and more than a little humor. Well worth the read; this is a detective pairing I hope to find more of.
