Volume 9 of the British Mystery Multipacks is devoted to a forgotten mystery franchise, The Max Carrados Mysteries. Ernest Bramah’s mastermind detective, a brilliant criminologist who happens to be blind, was originally featured in The Strand magazine alongside Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories. Detective Carrados may not have had the longevity of Holmes, but in the Golden Age of Detective Fiction he often outsold Doyle’s super-sleuth and received billing over Holmes in many Strand issues. 

Brash is an interesting author, one who had success across multiple genres, including fantasy and science fiction. He was influential on George Orwell who said, of The Max Carrados Mysteries, that they “are the only detective stories since Poe that are worth re-reading.” 

British Mystery Megapack Volume 9 presents the following Max Carrados mysteries: 

The Coin of Dionysius 
The Knight’s Cross Signal Problem 
The Tragedy at Brookbend Cottage 
The Clever Mrs. Straithwaite 
The Last Exploit of Harry the Actor 
The Tilling Shaw Mystery 
The Comedy at Fountain Cottage 
The Game played in the Dark
