Hooded Detective – Volume 3, No. 2

Hooded Detective - Volume 3, No. 2

Hooded Detective – Volume 3, No. 2

Evil lurks in the hearts and minds of men and many nefarious schemes are hatched by these gangsters, mob bosses and super villains. But thankfully, equally brave, talented detectives (some of them hooded) are there to track them down and thwart their twisted plans. These six stories, along with two “true fact detective shorts” were in the magazine Hooded Detective, January 1942. Are they well written? well, no, but they are fun. Here are a few of the blurbs: “They had expected spaghetti with meat sauce for dinner, but were served instead, hot lead, with a little bit of blood on the side….” (A Dinner Date with Murder) “Wilson Lamb cuddled his automatic to play “Mr. Death” and fingered little Louis Engel for coffin cargo. But when he pulled the trigger, Whisper the gun-cobra from Chi spilled out of Doom’s deck..” (Candidate for a Coffin). How can you top that last sentence?

A Double Barrelled Detective Story

A Double Barrelled Detective Story by Mark Twain

A Double Barrelled Detective Story by Mark Twain

A Double Barrelled Detective Story is a novel by Mark Twain, in which Sherlock Holmes finds himself in the American west.

At a mining camp in California, Fetlock Jones, a nephew of Sherlock Holmes, kills his master, a silver-miner, by blowing up his cabin. Since this occurs when Holmes happens to be visiting, he brings his skills to bear upon the case and arrives at logically worked conclusions that are proved to be abysmally wrong by an amateur detective with an extremely keen sense of smell, which he employs in solving the case. This could be seen as yet another piece where Twain tries to prove that life does not quite follow logic.

The Riddle of the Frozen Flame

The Riddle of the Frozen Flame by Mary E. Hanshew and Thomas W. Hanshew

Another full-length mystery story featuring Hamilton Cleek, whom we met first in Cleek: The Man of the Forty Faces. This time, Cleek investigates the sinister disappearance of people and the mysterious appearance of flames at night in the desolate Fens, and his friend Superintendent Narkom of Scotland Yard tries to solve some tricky cases of bank robberies in London.

While not quite up to the standard we have come to expect from previous Cleek adventures, it is still quite a jolly romp, and Cleek’s cockney sidekick Dollops is always good fun.

The Shield

The Shield

The Shield

This is not merely a book about the Russian Jews. It is a marvelous revelation of the Russian soul. It shows not only that the overwhelming majority of the Russian intellectuals, including nearly all of her brilliant literary geniuses, are opposed to the persecution of the Jews or any other race, but that they have a capacity for sympathy and understanding of humanity unequaled in any other land. I do not know of any book where the genius and heart of Russia is better displayed. Not only her leading litterateurs but also her leading statesmen and economists are represented—and all of them speak as with a single voice.
