AT THE VILLA ROSE by A. E. W. Mason

A heinous crime has been committed at the Villa Rose in Aix-les-Bains, France. A wealthy woman has been savagely murdered and the young Englishwoman who was her companion has disappeared. Authorities suspect that the Englishwoman played a role in the crime, but her fiancé, Harry Wethermill, is unconvinced and hires a private French detective in an attempt to prove her innocence.

From the author of The Four Feathers.

“A real page turner - One of the best 'fair play' detective novels of all time.”

AN EGYPTIAN CIGARETTE by Kate Chopin

This short but haunting short story is included as a divertissement. It is a superb example of fin de siecle despair and a favorite of mystery anthologies.

A STUDY IN SCARLET by Arthur Conan Doyle

The first Sherlock Holmes story!

Dr. Watson, a military surgeon lately returned from the Afghan War, needs a flat-mate and a diversion. Holmes needs a foil. And thus a great collaboration begins. Watson and Holmes move to a now-famous address, 221B Baker Street, where Watson is introduced to Holmes's eccentricities as well as his ability to deduce information about his fellow beings. Somewhat shaken by Holmes's egotism, Watson is nonetheless dazzled by his seemingly magical recall skills. Then murder. Facing a deserted house, a twisted corpse with no wounds, a mysterious phrase drawn in blood on the wall, and the buffoons of Scotland Yard--Lestrade and Gregson--Holmes measures, observes, picks up a pinch of this and a pinch of that, and generally baffles his faithful Watson. Later, Holmes explains: "In solving a problem of this sort, the grand thing is to be able to reason backward.... There are few people who, if you told them a result, would be able to evolve from their own inner consciousness what the steps were which led up to that result." Holmes is in that elite group.
