Publisher's Summary

The Detective Story Club's first short story anthology is based around a London detective club and includes three newly discovered tales unpublished for 100 years, plus a story bearing an uncanny resemblance to a Conan Doyle Sherlock Holmes story but written some seven years earlier.
You will seek in vain in any book of reference for the name of The Crime Club. Its watchword is secrecy. Its members wear the mask of mystery, but they form the most powerful organisation against master criminals ever known. The Crime Club is an international club composed of men who spend their lives studying crime and criminals. In its headquarters are to be found men from Scotland Yard and many foreign detectives and secret service agents.
This audiobook tells of their greatest victories over crime and is written, in association with George Dilnot, by a former member of the criminal investigation department of Scotland Yard. With its highly evocative title, The Crime Club was the first collection of short stories published by the Detective Story Club. Coauthored by CID superintendent Frank Froëst and police historian George Dilnot, these entertaining mysteries left people guessing how many were based on true cases. This Detective Story Club classic is introduced by David Brawn, who looks at how The Crime Club inspired a turning point in British book publishing. The audiobook includes three newly discovered stories by Froëst and Dilnot.
