Ernest Bramah (1868-1942) was an English author of 21 novels and numerous short stories and features. His humorous works have been ranked with Jerome K. Jerome and W. W. Jacobs, his detective stories with Conan Doyle, his politico-science fiction with H. G. Wells, and his supernatural stories with Algernon Blackwood.
In his stories of detection, Bramah hit on the idea of a blind detective, Max Carrados, whose triumphs are all the more amazing because of his disability.
This collection features five of Max Carrados's most puzzling cases: "The Curious Circumstances of the Two Left Shoes", "The Game Played in the Dark", "The Last Exploit of Harry the Actor", "The Comedy at Fountain Cottage", and "Who Killed Charlie Winpole?"

Forced my way though the idiosyncratic narration style.
If you like every single last sentence word being stretched out for an age, then Cathy Dobson is perfect for you.
For me it is like nails scraping a blackboard.
Intonation and effect when it is due a varied from the normal flow it can be an effective device for audiobooks, but as it stands for this series it suffers ironically from monotony.
