Book Review: Max Carrados by Ernest Bramah

(Three Stars)

“The thing is very simple.” “They always are—when you know.”

Century old tales of a blind detective. Well done but dated. Compare favorably with later detective novels.

“In order to have an accurate knowledge of what a man will do on any occasion it is only necessary to study a single characteristic action of his.”

Carrados solves crimes by preternaturally developed senses other than vision as well as help from other and incredible luck.

“The greater the confidence the greater the risk.”
