Tales of Terror and Mystery
Share this book    
This volume presents some of Conan Doyle s unduly neglected masterworks. Each begins in a quietly factual way, making all the more dramatic the crescendo of fear and puzzlement that ensues as each new circumstance is revealed. Even without his supremely logical brain child, Sherlock Holmes, Conan Doyle shows that his tales are unbeatable for thrills and excitement. Contents: Tales of terror: The horror of the heights The leather funnel The new catacomb The case of Lady Sannox The terror of Blue John Gap The Brazilian cat Tales of mystery: The lost special The beetle-hunter The man with the watches The japanned box The black doctor The Jew's breastplate The nightmare room.
