|Title:||Paul Campenhaye, Specialist in Criminology [The Clue of the Artificial Eye]|
|Publisher:||Ward, Lock & Co., Limited|
|Tags:||crime, England, fiction, mystery, short stories|
Ten stories narrated by a likable private investigator who not only labels himself a specialist in criminology but also says that he is not a detective and has nothing to do with the police. Indeed, Campenhaye works with only a clerk and a mysterious man about London, and some of his cases do not lead to police or legal action, partly because of his generosity toward women. Though most of the stories are set in London—about which Campenhaye is singularly knowledgeable—some cases take him as far north as Yorkshire. [Suggest a different description.]
Author Bio for Fletcher, J. S. (Joseph Smith)
Joseph Smith Fletcher (7 February 1863—30 January 1935) was a British journalist and author. He wrote more than 230 books on a wide variety of subjects, both fiction and non-fiction, and was one of the leading writers of detective fiction in the "Golden Age".
Fletcher's first books published were poetry. He then moved on to write numerous works of historical fiction and history, many dealing with Yorkshire, which led to his selection as a fellow of the Royal Historical Society.
Fletcher wrote several novels of rural life in imitation of Richard Jefferies, beginning with The Wonderful Wapentake (1894). Michael Sadleir stated that Fletcher's historical novel, When Charles I Was King (1892), was his best work.
In 1914, Fletcher wrote his first detective novel and went on to write over a hundred more, many featuring the private investigator Ronald Camberwell.--Wikipedia.
