About this title


Imagine you're the richest man in the world, and all you have to do to claim your fortune is to show that you worked gainfully for 5 years. That's the situation that young Jeffrey Stillingfleete found himself in as the deadline for his father's trust nears. But when a murder takes place at the Tippingdale Steel Mills, and Jeffrey is a suspect, his claim on the fortune is in danger. Not only does he have to find the real murderer, but he has to follow the clues that lead to the theft of a strange crimson cube, which may be behind the motive for the murder. It's the kind of mystery that Harry Stephen Keeler, who used to work in a steel mill very much like Tippingdale, thrives on. There is an introduction by Francis M. Nevins and a map-back cover by Gavin L. O'Keefe.

About the Author:

Never heard of Harry Stephen Keeler? Don't feel alone. He's America's most forgotten author, victim of a plot by publishers to weed out all writers who don't write swift, easy-to-read, dumbed-down prose for the masses. Harry wrote because he enjoyed it and early on developed a style all his own. He devised incredibly convoluted plots involving ethnic characters (who speak in outrageous dialect), pop culture of the 30s and 40s, and his favorite MacGuffin: skulls. Modern-day writers have their DNA evidence; Harry preferred skulls. Once you read a Keeler, you're never quite the same, and now -- thanks to Ramble House -- you can read all you want. And more! Every one of Keeler's 90+ novels has been brought back into print by Ramble House, including at least 20 titles that were never published before in English.
