The latest in a new series of classic detective stories from the vaults of HarperCollins is a thrilling mystery concerning twentieth-century pirates smuggling secret cargo across the English Channel."The Detective Story Club", launched by Collins in 1929, was a clearing house for the best and most ingenious crime stories of the age, chosen by a select committee of experts. Now, almost 90 years later, these books are the classics of the Golden Age, republished at last with the same popular cover designs that appealed to their original readers.Originally published in 1913 with the cryptic title WO2, Maurice Drake's novel was selected by the Detective Club for reissue in 1930. Set around Exmouth before the First World War, this early example of a mystery thriller includes a brand new introduction.'"The Mystery of the Mud Flats" is one of the most thrilling mystery stories ever written combining as it does the lure of a first-class mystery and the eternal lure of the sea. It is unique in its setting - the English Channel across whose narrow waters is smuggled that mysterious but profitable cargo, W.O.2. The amazing adventures that attend the intrepid yachtsmen engaged in this wholesale smuggling make truly exciting reading.'
