0 Reviews
In his own era, author Richard Marsh achieved a level of popular acclaim that rivaled -- and in some cases even surpassed -- that of luminaries such as Bram Stoker. Beginning with a seemingly chance encounter on a train, The Crime and the Criminal is a tightly plotted mystery packed with intrigue, blackmail, nefarious figures, and confounding clues. Fans of classic mystery and detective fiction will surely relish this engrossing tale.
