The Mystery of Cloomber

Front Cover
Independently Published, Jan 16, 2021 - 84 pages
I John Fothergill West, student of law in the University of St. Andrews, have endeavoured in the ensuing pages to lay my statement before the public in a concise and business-like fashion. It is not my wish to achieve literary success, nor have I any desire by the graces of my style, or by the artistic ordering of my incidents, to throw a deeper shadow over the strange passages of which I shall have to speak. My highest ambition is that those who know something of the matter should, after reading my account, be able to conscientiously indorse it without finding a single paragraph in which I have either added to or detracted from the truth. Should I attain this result, I shall rest amply satisfied with the outcome of my first, and probably my last, venture in literature.

Coincidentally started reading this book just after a visit to Wigtown and the Rhins of Galloway. Not a gripping story and not, I suspect Conan Doyle at his best. Read full review

This was a nice little mystery. It isn't that suspenseful, I don't know exactly why, I just didn't find it so. But it was an interesting story with engaging characters. Read full review
