Monsieur Lecoq, Vol. 2: The Honor of the Name by Émile Gaboriau

Monsieur Lecoq, Vol. 2: The Honor of the Name by Émile Gaboriau

Monsieur Lecoq is a captivating mystery, historical and love story:
Around 11 o’clock, on the evening of Shrove Sunday 18.., close to the old Barrière d’Italie, frightful cries, coming from Mother Chupin’s drinking-shop, are heard by a party of detectives led by Inspector Gévrol.

The squad runs up to it. A triple murder has just been committed. The murderer is caught on the premises.

Despite Gévrol’s opinion that four scoundrels encountered each other in this vile den, that they began to quarrel, that one of them had a revolver and killed the others, Lecoq, a young police agent, suspects a great mystery.

In this second book (out of two) we go back in time to that dark period of French history. Little by little, the key to the mystery murder is unveiled.

The Angel of Terror

The Angel of Terror by Edgar Wallace

The Angel of Terror by Edgar Wallace

Literary traditions still decree beauty to be the outward sign of inner saintliness, whereas evil characters tended to be “ugly as sin.” Jean Briggerland defies these expectations by being every bit as angelically beautiful as she is sociopathic. So lovely that all around her are blinded to her guilt no matter how blatant her crimes, only Jack Glover, best friend and lawyer of her most recent victim, is aware of her true nature. Can he stop her crime spree and bring her to justice before she murders her way to wealth and happiness? He really, really shouldn’t count on it. Despite the book’s outrageously implausible plot, it nevertheless manages to keep one in suspense from first page to last. Advisory: Antiquated attitudes and occasional profanity will add unintentional humor to the charms of the story for some listeners but might offend others.
