Two Locked-Room Mysteries and a Ripping Yarn

By Max Afford

  • Release Date: 2011-11-18
  • Genre: Policier et suspense


This collection presents three short stories by Max Afford. Two tales feature sleuth Jeffery Blackburn, his wife Elizabeth, and Inspector William Read: 'Poison Can Be Puzzling' and 'The Vanishing Trick' were originally published in Australian periodicals in the 1940s, and appear to be the only published short crime fiction tales by Afford. 'The Gland Men Of The Island' appears to be Afford's sole foray into science-fiction; the story first appeared in WONDER STORIES in 1931.
