Volume 9 of the British Mystery Multipacks is devoted to a forgotten mystery franchise, the Max Carrados Mysteries. Ernest Bramah’s mastermind detective, a criminologist who happens to be blind, was originally featured in The Strand magazine alongside Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories. Detective Carrados may not have had the longevity of Holmes, but in the Golden Age of Detective Fiction he often outsold Doyle’s super-sleuth and received billing over Holmes in many Strand issues.

Bramah is an interesting author, one who had success across multiple genres, including fantasy and science fiction. He was influential on George Orwell who said, of the Max Carrados mysteries, that they “are the only detective stories since Poe that are worth re-reading.”

British Mystery Multipack Volume 9 presents the following Max Carrados mysteries:

  • The Coin of Dionysius
  • The Knight’s Cross Signal Problem
  • The Tragedy at Brookbend Cottage
  • The Clever Mrs. Straithwaite
  • The Last Exploit of Harry the Actor
  • The Tilling Shaw Mystery
  • The Comedy at Fountain Cottage
  • The Game played in the Dark
