Page headers and unobtrusive original annotations explicating unusually obscure terms exemplify the attention to detail given this volume. By increasing the page size along with the font size we are able to reduce printing costs and make this complete, unabridged large print edition available at reasonable cost.

The Albert Gate Mystery...

The newspaper account of police activity at an Albert Gate Mansion was so vague that Reginald Brett, prominent barrister and amateur detective, knew that Scotland Yard was keeping the reporter in the dark for some good reason. And when Lord Fairholme appeared at Brett's door seeking his help, he quickly understood why.

Three members of a special delegation from the Turkish sultan had been found murdered, and a large collection of uncut diamonds had disappeared, along with Jack Talbot, designated by the Home Office to watch over the envoys...and Lord Fairholme's prospective brother-in-law.

Despite the evidence, Brett has doubts about the official theory that Talbot orchestrated the murders and theft and has fled with the diamonds. Taking up the investigation, Brett applies his powers of observation and deduction, pursuing a complex web of intrigue and deception with strands extending from London to Paris and beyond, racing to round up the conspirators and recover the diamonds in time to avert an international incident.

About the Author:

Louis Tracy (1863-1928) was a prolific British writer of both fiction and nonfiction. Despite his large body of work, comparatively little is known about Tracy's life. The author of numerous mysteries, Tracy's works are characterized by a straightforward narrative style, well-developed background stories, interesting characters and complex plots.

Offered a job as a reporter in response to a letter he submitted to a local paper Tracy became a newspaperman, eventually serving as editor of the English-language Morning Post in Allahabad, India.

Between 1885 and 1895 Tracy wrote and edited a series of nonfiction books and short stories, based for the most part on his experiences in India. In 1895 he outlined his first novel, about a European conflict in which America would come to the aid of Britain in a great war which would be the end of all war, was published as a serial in "Pearson's Weekly" and later in book form. "The Final War" was quite successful and is a pioneering example of the "Future War" or "Future History" sub-genre of science fiction and fantasy literature.

By 1900 Tracy was producing straightforward mystery novels on a regular basis, and with the exception of 1917-1919, when he was rousing support for the war effort in America, he continued to publish an average two or three novels per year through the 1920's, and a collection of his works was reissued after his death. A few of his novels are still fairly well-known, and many of his mysteries, especially those featuring Reginald Brett and Winter & Furneaux, are still read and enjoyed by mystery fans today.
