About this title


J.G. Links and Dennis Wheatley came up with the idea of creating a 'dossier' concerning a murder mystery which offered in a cardboard folder all the evidence and relevant clues - accompanied by, naturally, numerous red herrings - to enable the reader to find the solution to the puzzle. The correct answer was contained in a sealed section at the back of the folder. The physical clues took diverse forms; 'poison pills', cigarette ends, used matchsticks and curls of hair along with facsimile police reports, cablegrams and so on. The first dossier, 'Murder off Miami', appeared in July 1936. The folder bore the legend: 'Dennis Wheatley presents a new era in crime fiction - a murder mystery planned by J.G. Links.' The precise extent of the respective contributions to the story of Wheatley and Links is, as with so many collaborative efforts, not entirely clear, but it seems that Wheatley focused on the narrative of the story (such as it was) and Links on the plot-line.
