FROM THE PUBLISHER - Hugh Greene previously delighted readers with THE RIVALS OF SHERLOCK HOLMES, his collection of detective stories set in London and written at the time of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s heyday. Now he presents us with a companion volume of stories, written by other less well known but first-rate mystery writers of the period, in which the scene shifts from London to foreign countries around the world. In a fascinating array of locales, from South Africa to Bruges, from the Canadian woods to Copenhagen, from an American prison to a French chateau, COSMOPOLITAN CRIMES brings together a fine collection of intriguing detectives and clever villains. Among the writers in this interesting and entertaining volume are: Grant Allen, George Griffith, Arnold Bennett, Jacques Futrelle, Maurice LeBlanc, Baron Palle Rosenkrantz, and H. Hesketh Prichard. An introduction by Hugh Greene gives a brief description of each writer and places him within the period. Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket. Bookseller Inventory # 27010
