Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

For nearly a century, Sexton Blake was the most written about character in British fiction. He starred in approximately 4,000 stories by nearly 200 authors. A cross between Sherlock Holmes and Indiana Jones, he was a publishing phenomenon, read by young and old alike. 

Comprised of three more 'Golden Age' stories from Union Jack, in which Sexton Blake discusses the various reporters, adventurers, Scotland Yard men and private detectives with whom he worked.

The Case of the Seventh Key by W. W. Sayer (1925):

A pocket is picked, Blake is deceived, a murder is committed, the Orient Express is boarded, Secret Service Agent Granit Grant enters the fray, crown jewels are at risk, Blake is poisoned and left tied up on a railway track, horses are commandeered and a chase ends in Prague.

Ghost Mobile by Gwyn Evans (1931): 

A car accident claims an innocent life, a thug decides on revenge, Splash Page finds a scoop, Sexton Blake is summoned, a phantom motor-lorry is seen and a heist is foiled.

Tree of Evil by Rex Hardinge (1932):

Sir Richard Losely is taunted by a disembodied voice and succumbs to poison, Lobangu has a prophetic dream, Blake acquires an additional assistant, a native uprising occurs, hungry crocodiles are evaded, battle is engaged and a malicious spirit is exposed.

Excellent Stuff!

Another solid outing from The Great Detective and his assistant Tinker. The second story in particular is an absolute riot involving an American gunslinger, the Chicago Mob and a ghostly lorry. All very abley read by the fantastic Colin Mace who also did the previous installments of Mark Hodder's new Blake compilations. Looking forward to future installments!
