This antiquarian book contains a collection of forty-eight stories written by the celebrated Czech writer, Karel Capek. These thrilling and thought-provoking stories attempt to challenge the mystery story paradigm by bending the rules in novel ways. They will appeal to both those who ordinarily love, and those loathe mystery fiction. A great addition to any collection, this compendium constitutes a must-have for fans and collectors of Capek's seminal work. The chapters of this book include: 'The Stolen Papers', 'The Clairvoyant', 'The Secrets of Handwriting Proof Positive', 'The Fortune-Teller', 'There Was Something Shady about the Man', 'The Strange Experiences of Mr. Janik', 'The Selvin Case', 'The Coupon', etcetera. We are republishing this antiquarian volume in an affordable, modern edition, complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
