many admirers of Mr. Fortune will welcome these new adventures, in which that most bland and amiable of modern detectives again and again provides solutions to the most puzzling mysteries and matches his wits successfully against the cleverest criminals. Let no one imagine that Mr. Fortune is an ordinary detective or that these are ordinary detective stories. Mr. Fortune is in a class by himself, as Scotland Yard ungrudgingly acknowledges, and his nimble mind is no more remarkable than are his imperturbable good humour and his intensely sane philosophy. Mr. Fortune is worth knowing and worth knowing well. This volume will certainly extend the privilege of intimacy to a much wider circle
