Publisher's Summary

Five men sat in a railroad compartment on the main train from London to Dover. The same five men boarded the Channel steamer and crossed to Calais, where they caught another train for Paris. By the time the train reaches Paris, we learn that one man is a detective from Scotland Yard, on the trail of stolen gems; one man is a murderer; and another, a corpse!This introduction leads the listener into a story that has been characterized as the best detective novel between The Moonstone and The Hound of the Baskervilles.

Good early mystery

This is a good, fun story, although it drags in spots. The fascinating part is watching the author explore the possibilities of this new genre, before the development of the conventions with which modern readers and listeners are well aware.
