Book Description

As James Cranage stood on the Clarence Pier at Portsmouth, he noticed a big, heavily-built man grasping a scrap of twisted paper, and looking around him, obviously annoyed and uncertain. Anxious to earn a shilling, Cranage approached him and asked if he could be of any assistance.
The stranger started nervously, but after a moment's hesitation he thrust he bit of paper and a sovereign into Cranage's hand, with whispered instructions as to its delivery.
From than moment Cranage becomes involved in an amazing series of murders, whilst in the background lurks a mysterious, sinister Chinaman...

From J. S. Fletcher, one of the leading writers of detective fiction in the Golden Age, a compelling mystery story rich in plot twists and action. An evergreen classic worth rediscovering.

The discovery of J S Fletcher, of whom I had previously never heard, has opened up a source of excellent, light, crime novels of the 1920s. Really pleased
