The original armchair detective

From the creator of Scarlet Pimpernel comes an equally memorable character a sleuth like no other. A nameless old man sits in the corner of a cosy London tea shop, and without leaving his seat, solves baffling crimes reported to him by a journalist.

Using just deduction and ratiocination, the old man in the corner unravels the solutions to a range of criminal cases from sensational murders (‘The Lisson Grove Mystery’) and daring thefts (‘The Affair at the Novelty Theatre’) to brilliant deceptions (‘The Liverpool Mystery) and deadly blackmail schemes (‘The Murder of Miss Pebmarsh’).

Set in the golden days of gaslight London, these ingenious, skilfully crafted stories by Baroness Orczy are an integral part of the dawn of detective fiction and will delight fans of Sherlock Holmes.
