The Rumble Murders

$4.99

You have no doubt read detective stories in which the characters gasp, shriek, or are rooted to the spot (x marks the spot). Here is perhaps the first detective story in which anybody laughs. No sleuths who ever faced a baffling mystery got more thrills and ‘scoops’ out of their bloodcurdling discoveries than the four who called themselves the ‘homicide squad,’ to wit, a much worried suburbanite, a newspaper man, a writer of detective stories, and a real detective. You are introduced on the first page to George Gaynleigh, skeptical, inquisitive, brilliantly daring in his deductions. The fact that he is occasionally fallible stamps him as unique among non-professional sleuths. You’ll find him a refreshing change.
