Description:

When Detective-Sergeant Charlesworth of Scotland Yard was sent down to Aldersyke Manor to investigate the sudden mysterious death of Sir Charles Stanmore, he determined that, no matter what happened, if it proved to be a case of murder, he would find the culprit; for on this, his first big case, his whole future depended. Yet when he arrived on the scene there was very little on which to make a start. Sir Charles, according to the doctor, had died from poisoning, though whether it was selfadministered or not he was unable to say on his first examination. He hinted at murder. So Charlesworth set about solving one of the most amazing mysteries ever recorded in the annals of crime, thus adding another tremendous thriller to Mr. Fletcher's long list of successes.

Author Bio for Fletcher, J. S. (Joseph Smith)

Author Image

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.
