In the tradition of the old Ace Doubles (flip the book over to read the second volume), here's the tenth Wildside Mystery Double:
THE RETURN OF SHERLOCK HOLMES: A CLASSIC CRIME TALE, adapted from the play of Ernest Dudley by Philip Harbottle. Ernest Dudley (the creator of Dr. Morelle) was married to the actress who was a stepdaughter of Ellie Norwood, the famous silent film actor who played Sherlock Holmes on stage many times. Dudley's familiarity with Conan Doyle's famous characters is very evident in this exciting story of blackmail and murder, as Sherlock Holmes pits his wits against his deadly enemy, Colonel Sebastian Moran, second-in-command to Professor Moriarty.
NEW CASES FOR DR. MORELLE: CLASSIC CRIME STORIES, by Ernest Dudley. Cynthia Mason, a young heiress, lives with her violent stepfather, Samuel Kimber, who only holds control of her fortune while she remains unmarried. On announcing her engagement to Peter Lorrimer, a local writer, who is calling to take her away that same evening, she fears his reaction. Lorrimer arrives and goes to talk with Kimber in his study. Cynthia, meanwhile, carrying a suitcase, tiptoes
downstairs, opens the front door, and leaves. But she's not in Lorrimer's car when he goes down to the gates after his interview with Kimber. Instead, she vanishes without a trace! Her confidante and friend Miss Frayle, secretary to
the criminologist Doctor Morelle, tries to find her--and herself becomes a target for murder! Four classic crime stories resurrected for a brand new audience.
