London, Walter Scott, 1889. First edition, first impression. Paperback. A very good copy. A mystery novel involving the murder of a woman in Brussels. Part of the Novocastrian Novels (Novocastrian meaning the people of Newcastle). From a contemporary review: In this book we are hurried breathlessly from one chapter of thrilling interest to another. The subject is not a pleasant one, *'The murder of a woman on the out-skirts of Brussels" furnishing the plot, which is well conceived, and worked up with power and skill. Anyone proposing to try detective work as a profession might find in the book some useful hints, and moreover might emulate the Belgian detective M. Chauvet, whose acumen and promptness of action make one wish that these desirable qualities had been forthcoming in connection with the recent diabolical outrages in the East End of London. A little staining to the wrappers, some wear to the spine - a little repair to the spine. A nice copy overall. [11023, Hyraxia Books].
