Synopsis: All that wealth -- Mrs. Octagon would not be surprised to hear someone had murdered her aunt for it!

No sooner had she voiced her musings, sitting in private with her daughter, than her husband burst in with the evening paper. "My dear," he said, his scanty hair almost standing on end, "such dreadful news. Your aunt, my dear -- "

"Selina," said Mrs. Octagon quietly, "go on. There is nothing bad I don't expect to hear about Selina. What is it?"

"She is dead!"

Detective Miles Jennings of Scotland Yard and his school chum Cuthbert Mallow face a puzzling case, for it involves family and friends, and no shortage of odd characters -- with the added puzzle that an engagement is being broken off -- for reason of the murder!

About the Author: Fergus Hume was born Fergusson Wright Hume July 8 1859 in England.

Book Description Createspace, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.The Secret Passage by Fergus Hume - Fergusson Wright Hume, known as Fergus Hume (8 July 1859 - 12 July 1932) was a prolific English novelist. Hume was born in England, the second son of James Hume. At the age of three, his father emigrated with his family to Dunedin, New Zealand, where he was educated at Otago Boys High School and studied law at the University of Otago. He was admitted to the New Zealand bar in 1885. Shortly after graduation he relocated to Melbourne, Australia, where he obtained a job as a barristers clerk. He began writing plays, but found it impossible to persuade the managers of Melbourne theatres to accept or even read them. Finding that the novels of Emile Gaboriau were then very popular in Melbourne, he obtained and read a set of them and determined to write a novel of a similar kind. The result was the self-published novel The Mystery of a Hansom Cab (1886), which became a great success. Hume based his descriptions of poor urban life on his knowledge of Little Bourke Street. He sold the English and United States rights to the novel for 50 pounds, and thus derived little benefit from its success. It eventually became the best selling mystery novel of the Victorian era, author John Sutherland terming it the most sensationally popular crime and detective novel of the century. This novel inspired Arthur Conan Doyle to write A Study in Scarlet, which introduced the character Sherlock Holmes. Doyle remarked, Hansom Cab was a slight tale, mostly sold by puffing . After the success of his first novel and the publication of another, Professor Brankel s Secret (c.1886), Hume returned to England in 1888. He resided in London for few years and then he moved to the Essex countryside where he lived in Thundersley for 30 years, eventually producing more than 100 novels and short stories. He continued to be anxious for success as a dramatist, and at one time Henry Irving was favourably considering one of his plays, but he died before it could be produced.
