The Purple Flame and Other Detective Stories by Frederick Irving Anderson
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1.15mb
Overview: Frederick Irving Anderson (1877-1947) has shown perhaps the greatest mastery of the American short detective story . . . in ingenuity, command of plot, and the carefully integrated backgrounds of his work. So wrote the great mystery critic and historian, Howard Haycraft, in 1941. Ellery Queen added that his style is rich in detail and double-rich in expression. Many of his stories take place in New York City during the 1920s and the 1930s, and they feature the manhunter Deputy Parr and the ;extinct author, Oliver Armiston, who stopped writing ingenious crime stories because criminals were copying his gimmicks. The book is edited and introduced by the Anderson expert (and Poe scholar), Benjamin F. Fisher. This is the thirty-eighth volume in Crippen & Landru Lost Classics series previously uncollected detective and mystery stories by great writers of the past. The cover is by Gail Cross, adapted from a 1935 photograph of New York City by Berenice Abbott for the WPA.

The Harlequin: The Draper’s Reel by J.A. Mortimore, Penelope Hill
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1.4 Mb
Overview: Question my honesty if you must, but nobody, and I mean nobody, questions my skill.
I’ve never paid much attention to the gods, which may be why I foolishly agreed to steal Pardeem’s reel. It seemed a straightforward enough challenge for a master trickster like me, but with things like this you never know.
Leaving my cosy retirement isn’t difficult. Wearing the Harlequin’s hat again feels right. However returning to Emor holds challenges. Old friends and enemies wait in the shadows; maybe I can turn that to my advantage. But now my own god seems to be paying me far too much attention. This isn’t going to be straightforward.
But that’s the thrill, isn’t it? To dance with peril, to spin with the twists, to confound expectations and to embrace the trick for its own sake. The Harlequin doesn’t give up at the first hurdle.
If I can carry this off, it will be the heist of a lifetime.
Failure might cost me everything.

Strong Vincent: A Call to Glory by John Hinman
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 2.7 Mb
Overview: Many people have heard about Joshua Chamberlain’s famous bayonet charge at Gettysburg; few know about the unsung hero who put him there.
The Civil War broke out in 1861, just as Strong Vincent was beginning his career as a Harvard-educated lawyer and preparing to marry his sweetheart, Elizabeth. Vowing to defend his nation, Vincent volunteered. With no previous military experience, he worked his way from lieutenant to colonel in the Union Army, leading his men through many of the war’s most brutal battles.
When a vital part of the defensive line was left unguarded at the Battle of Gettysburg, Colonel Vincent strategically recognized Little Round Top as the most valuable ground on the battlefield. He led his brigade, which included Chamberlain’s regiment along with three others, there to defend it despite not having orders to do so-a decision that could have resulted in a court-martial. Outnumbered by more than two to one, Vincent and his brigade put up a historic defense that would change the tide of the battle, and the war itself-including the charge that became the stuff of legend.
Strong Vincent: A Call to Glory tells the story of Gettysburg’s unheralded hero, a common man trying to navigate life and romance in the midst of war who achieved the extraordinary.
