Melville Davisson Post THE SLEUTH OF ST. JAMES'S SQUARE: Sir Henry Marquis Tales (Murder Mystery Classic)

Melville Davisson Post The Man of Last Resort & The Strange Schemes of Randolph Mason


Randolph Mason is a brusque New York lawyer who is highly skilled at turning legal loopholes and technicalities to his clients' advantage. He is depicted as an utterly amoral character who advises criminals how to commit wrongdoings without breaking the letter of the law. The best-known of these stories is «The Corpus Delicti», in which Mason's client murders a blackmailing lover and dissolves her dismembered corpse in acid. Despite circumstantial evidence, Mason secures his client's acquittal on the grounds that nobody has been found and there are no eyewitnesses to the woman's death, as required by New York law at the time. Post deflected criticism of such sensational stories by affirming that he was publicly exposing weaknesses in the law that needed to be rectified. Melville Davisson Post (1869-1930) was an American author, born in West Virginia.

Melville Davisson Post Uncle Abner, Master of Mysteries: 18 Detective Tales in One Volume


Uncle Abner, the mystery solving West Virginian backwoodsman, is the best-known literary creation of Melville Davisson Post. Uncle Abner solved the mysteries that confronted him in a backwoods West Virginia community, immediately prior to the American Civil War and before the infant nation had any proper police system. He had two great attributes for his self-imposed task: a profound knowledge of and love for the Bible, and a keen observation of human actions. One example of Uncle Abner's keen deductive skills is his showing a deaf man had not written a document, because a word in it was phonetically misspelt. The first one of these tales, «The Angel of the Lord», is perhaps the very first work in the historical mystery genre. Melville Davisson Post (1869-1930) was an American author, born in West Virginia. Although his name is not immediately familiar to those outside of specialist circles many collections of detective fiction include works by him. Post's best-known character is the mystery solving, justice dispensing West Virginian backwoodsman, Uncle Abner. Table of Contents: The Doomdorf Mystery The Wrong Hand The Angel of the Lord An Act of God The Treasure Hunter The House of the Dead Man A Twilight Adventure The Age of Miracles The Tenth Commandment The Devil's Tools The Hidden Law The Riddle The Straw Man The Mystery of Chance The Concealed Path The Edge of the Shadow The Adopted Daughter Naboth's Vineyard

Melville Davisson Post The Sleuth of St. James's Square


Once considered by many to be the greatest American mystery writer of all time, Melville Davisson Post (1869-1930) has begun to fall into undeserved obscurity in the near century since his death. The Sleuth of St. James’s Square, first published as a book in 1920, aptly demonstrates his strengths, and it makes a good place to start for anyone encountering Post’s work for the first time. This volumes includes 16 mystery stories, each connected—if sometimes tangentially—to Sir Henry Marquis, head of the Criminal Investigation Department of Scotland Yard, who is called upon to solve some of the strangest and most puzzling cases in Britain. It starts with a locked-room mystery and ends in Scotland, at a house by a Loch where more is going on than meets the eye. A first-rate collection.

Herman Melville The Confidence-Man: His Masquerade


"The Confidence-Man: His Masquerade" is the 1857 novel of Herman Melville which tells the interlocking stories of a group of travelers aboard a steamboat on the Mississippi River making their way toward New Orleans. The novel, which emulates the style of Chaucer's «Canterbury Tales», centers on its title character, the Confidence-Man, a mysterious figure who sneaks aboard the steamboat and successively tests the confidence of the passengers. In so doing the masquerades of the passengers are exposed and their true natures are revealed. A satirical and allegorical set of tales, «The Confidence-Man: His Masquerade» is a rich exposition on the nature of human identity set against the vivid imagery of the Mississippi riverboat era.
