“What are you looking for, sir?” he said. “Bloodstains.” Scotland Yard is concerned with the murderer, or murderers, of the mysterious Bernard Pitt. The dead man is discovered with a false identity, courtesy of the many forged papers and documents found with him. The trail leads to France, where we discover why a French milliner chose to ride in a laundry basket, why the two American men are so interested in their wives’ hat trimmings, and why it is so difficult for the French police to touch a criminal with high political connections. But Richardson discovers that the murder of Bernard Pitt was only an incident in the diabolical plot linking a network of criminals on both sides of the Channel. The Milliner’s Hat Mystery, a novel which inspired Ian Fleming, was first published in 1937. This new edition, the first for many decades, includes an introduction by crime novelist Martin Edwards, author of acclaimed genre history The Golden Age of Murder. “Sir Basil Thomson is a past-master in the mysteries of Scotland Yard.” Times Literary Supplement

In the hall he found the body of his maidservant, Helen Dunn, aged about fifty, lying on the floor near the telephone. She had bled profusely from a wound in the head and her body was cold. Richardson’s second case begins with a murder and robbery at a quiet house in Laburnum Road, and goes on to include an escaped parrot and a seemingly perfect crime which threatened a scandal to shock all England. Follow with Detective-Sergeant Richardson the fantastic story of an antiquarian’s nephew, a pseudo policeman, and a stolen car...search with him for a man wanted for murder...another who fainted at a political meeting...the Treasury note which, because of the name written on it, was a warrant of death. Packed with clues, excitement and humour, this mystery will be certain to thrill and satisfy even the most ardent devotee of detective fiction. Richardson Scores Again was first published in 1934. This new edition, the first in many decades, includes a new introduction by crime novelist Martin Edwards, author of acclaimed genre history The Golden Age of Murder. “Sir Basil Thomson’s tales are always good reading, and he has the knack of being accurate about Scotland Yard. His book is full of agreeable people, and his case is neatly put together.” Dorothy L. Sayers, Sunday Times “Few authors can claim such an intimate knowledge of Scotland Yard and criminals as Sir Basil Thomson, one-time Assistant Commissioner at the Yard. He provides subtle intrigue, clever deduction, and bright dialogue, and the whole combines to make easily the best mystery yarn that has come my way in recent weeks. No words are wasted in the fast-moving plot...This book must not be missed.” Referee

The D.D.I. recognized him and smiled. “That was a great case you brought us. You’ll be interested to hear that it is a case of mur-r-der!” For eight years Basil Thomson headed the famous C.I.D., New Scotland Yard. He knew the Yard inside out. Now in this tale of mystery and detection we are taken behind the scenes. We are shown the greatest detection machine in the world in motion, and see how the Yard tracked down its man. Stand, then, with young P.C. Richardson on the misty corner of Baker Street, while the traffic of the city swings by, and fate lays at his feet the beginning of his career. Out of the fog brakes shriek, a big car jolts to a stop, and from beneath the wheels the crowd disentangles a bundle of old clothes, within which is a man quite dead; a man who had said to someone, “Very well, then; I’ll call a policeman”—and was killed. Work with him to the ingenious solution, when he takes from his pocket the clue holding the fate of a human life. Richardson’s First Case was originally published in 1933. This new edition, the first in over seventy years, features an introduction by crime novelist Martin Edwards, author of acclaimed genre history The Golden Age of Murder. “The story is a good one, with enough mystery in it to keep the reader wondering.” Daily Telegraph

“The late Miss Clynes, sir? How dreadful. It must have been very sudden.” “It was.” Naomi Clynes was found dead, her head in the gas-oven. She left a suicide note, but Richardson, newly promoted to the rank of Inspector in the C.I.D., soon has cause to think this is a case of murder. With scarcely a clue beyond a postmark and a postage stamp, treasured by the deceased, he succeeds in bringing home the crime to a person whom no one would have suspected. The Case of Naomi Clynes was originally published in 1934. This new edition, the first in many decades, features an introduction by crime novelist Martin Edwards, author of acclaimed genre history The Golden Age of Murder. “Sir Basil Thomson is a past-master in the mysteries of Scotland Yard, and this novel is a highly capable piece of work...A brisk story, skilfully told.” Times Literary Supplement “A first-class thriller. Written with lively vigour and a realism that can only come from an author who knows his subject, it can be wholeheartedly recommended as the best detective story of the week.” Sunday Referee

Edgar Wallace (1875-1932) war ein englischer Schriftsteller, Drehbuchautor, Regisseur, Journalist und Dramatiker. Wallace gehört zu den erfolgreichsten englischsprachigen Kriminalschriftstellern. Die Romane von Edgar Wallace wurden in vierundvierzig Sprachen übersetzt. Aus dem Buch: "Erst vor wenigen Monaten war er als abgerissener Abenteurer nach London gekommen und hatte kein anderes Besitztum gehabt als die Kleider, die er auf dem Leib trug. Er hatte wirklich Ursache, sich zu freuen. Denn plötzlich war er in die feinste Gesellschaft eingeführt worden und hatte einflußreiche Leute kennengelernt, die ihn weiterempfahlen, so daß er einen immer größeren Bekanntenkreis bekam. Er war der Berater einer der schönsten Frauen Londons und der Vertraute von Aristokraten geworden."
