Book Description

This is a collection of three books with detective themes: “The Great Detectives: From Vidocq to Sam Spade,” “Coffee Break Mysteries,” and “More Coffee Break Mysteries.”

“The Great Detectives” traces the birth and evolution of the detective story, from its origins in the early nineteenth century with Edgar Allan Poe, then its development by Charles Dickens, Wilkie Collins and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, to the twentieth century masters of the “cozy” mystery, Agatha Christie and Dorothy Sayers, and the American “hardboiled” school of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett. Along the way, we’ll learn more about Sherlock Holmes and Sam Spade!

“Coffee Break Mysteries” is a collection of twenty short mysteries, from shoplifting to murder. Each mystery is set forth for the reader to solve, with clues and several suspects. The reader solves the mystery, then turns to the next page for the solution. It’s just the right pace for something new and different as you enjoy your coffee break! The reader will surely have favorites, perhaps from the selection of Ask Martha mysteries. But don’t tell Ask Martha’s secret – this advice for the lovelorn columnist is really a 6 foot 6 inch former football player named “Crusher” Davis, making ends meet by writing under a pseudonym for the local newspaper!

“More Coffee Break Mysteries: The Sherlock Holmes Edition” is a collection of twenty short mysteries, ranging from blackmail to murder. The author is grateful for the permission of Jonathan Clowes Limited, London, England, on behalf of Andrea Plunket, Administrator of the Conan Doyle Copyrights, to feature five immortal characters who were created by the late Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. These five, Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Watson, Professor Moriarty, Inspector Lestrade, and Mrs. Hudson, appear in five adventures that begin this collection.

The stories continue with six British and American mysteries, ranging from two British classic settings, “Mystery On The Moor” and “The Haunted Portrait,” to a contemporary American whodunit, “The High School Crush Murder.” Next come four stories in an American summer theater setting, the “Straw Hat Mysteries,” which feature crimes ranging from murder to the perhaps even more nefarious attempted theft of a starring acting role! Five new Ask Martha mysteries conclude the collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Mentalist Strikes Again. May 23, 2014
Whether your trying to solve a 200 year old plot to assassinate George Washington, attend the witch trials of old Salem in your modern day sweats ( and your the witch) or just want to know who stole second base, it's all here. Mr. Shepard once again masters the mystery of "who dun it". Wonderful to have The Master Detective Trio all under one cover. Sit back, relax and enjoy.
