    Mr J G Reeder, a brilliant and quietly unassuming detective, is a middle aged man whose speciality for more than twenty years has been to deal exclusively with bank robbers and forgers. "I see evil in everything," he declares, "… in dying rose bushes, in horseshoes - in poetry even. I have the mind of a criminal. It is deplorable!" In these four casefiles, The Poetical Policeman, The Treasure Hunt, The Troupe, and The Stealer of Marble, the sheer genius of Mr Reeder shines forth.

    Herbert Armstrong was a Welsh solicitor who murdered his wife by administering arsenic. His life was marked by love affairs and dubious business dealings. It is also probable that his hatred of his dull, respectable existence in a tiny rural village was one of the motives for his terrible crime. This story of the crime and trial of Armstrong is told by Edgar Wallace, who reported from the courtroom. On behalf of a newspaper syndicate, Wallace offered the convicted man £5,000 for his confession. The offer was refused.
