Hardback. As a journalist the author selected a number of assorted murders and chose to write them in 'story form' as opposed to just being 'reported'. In no case has he added to the facts, but in every case he has embellished the facts at his disposal. He maintains the presentation of fact in the form of fiction has at least the merit of being a change 'in these days when fiction is so often presented in the guise of fact.' Chapter headings include : Murder by a Miniature-Painter; Decline and Fall of a Professor (Webster); The Poison of Doctor Panchenko; Death Sentence on a Reverend Gentleman (James Hackman); The Killing of Sir John (Goodere); The Girdle of Gabrielle Bompard; Death in the Tunnel (Arthur Lefroy); Confession of Constance Kent; Murder on a March Morning (Alfred and Albert Stratton); The Life and Death of Nicholas Mooney + others. With chapter headpieces drawn by Batt. 285pp. 8vo. h/back. F.
