Mr Romney Pringle is a sham literary agent and a man of wide interests, which he mostly employs to enrich himself. Pringle is an avid studier of his fellow men and the opportunities they offer him, though he's often willing to help a poor soul out - providing he doesn't end up out of pocket himself at the end. In these detective stories, originally published in 1902-1903, Pringle sets off on his new-fangled bicycle on a series of ingenious escapades, solving puzzles, conning criminals, causing a stock market crisis and even unearthing buried treasure.

These twelve tales conjure up the authentic atmosphere of Victorian London and offer a thrilling alternative to the ascetic honesty of Sherlock Holmes!

'Clifford Ashdown' was the nom de plume of prison medical officer John J. Pitcairn and doctor R. Austin Freeman, the latter of whom co-wrote these stories at the beginning of a long and successful career as a writer of detective stories.
