9780008137083: The Mayfair Mystery: 2835 Mayfair (The Detective Club)

The first in a new series of classic detective stories from the vaults of HarperCollins involves a disappearing corpse, a supernatural theory, and a genuinely shocking finale.

“The Detective Story Club”, launched by Collins in 1929, was a clearing house for the best and most ingenious crime stories of the age, chosen by a select committee of experts. Now, almost 90 years later, these books are the classics of the Golden Age, republished at last with the same popular cover designs that appealed to their original readers.

“This most entertaining detective story is concerned with an amazing crime. The body of a wealthy man is discovered by his valet. The valet hurried to a friend of the dead man to tell him of the tragedy. They return to find the body gone! The motive of the murder becomes a deeper mystery still, and no clue seems to lead anywhere. Little by little, however, evidence is built up round a theory, and clever detective work triumphs in the end. For ingenuity and dramatic situations “The Mayfair Mystery” is hard to beat.”

First published in 1907 as 2835 Mayfair, the book had caught the imagination of the reading public for its thrilling twists, its wit and imagination, and was chosen to be one of the first 12 classic books released by the Club. This new edition comes with a brand new introduction about the history of the Detective Club by HarperCollins’ editor, David Brawn.

Book Description Collins Crime Club. 1 Cloth(s), 2015. hard. Book Condition: New. With a vanishing corpse, a supernatural theory, and a genuinely shocking finale, this mystery—originally published in 1907 as 2835 Mayfair—was the only crime novel by British satirist Frank Richardson. It begins as the body of a wealthy doctor is discovered by his valet, who hurries off to get help. When he returns, however, the body has disappeared without a trace; this is not simply an unexplained case of what the butler saw, however, nor is it the only disappearance. Described by the New York Times as "a deep and dark mystery from the startling first page until the amazing last one," the book thrilled and entertained its readers with its extravagant characters and ingenious twists and is part of the Detective Story Club, first launched by Wm. Collins Sons in 1929 as a clearinghouse for the best and most ingenious crime stories of the time. Now, almost 90 years later, these books are classics of the Golden Age of mysteries, and HarperCollins is republishing them in handsome black hardbacks with gold foil printing and the same enticing dust jacket designs that appealed to their original readers. 228.
