Synopsis

The fourth thrilling collection of classic stories welcoming back the adventuring detective as brilliant as Sherlock Holmes and as daring as James Bond.



For nearly a century, Sexton Blake was the most written about character in British fiction. He starred in approximately four thousand stories by nearly two hundred authors. A cross between Sherlock Holmes and Indiana Jones, he was a publishing phenomenon, read by young and old alike.



This collection is comprised of two SEXTON BLAKE LIBRARY stories from the 1940s, focusing on the Second World War and the changing nature of his investigations in its aftermath.



THE MAN FROM OCCUPIED FRANCE by Anthony Parsons (1941)



A woman is wrongly condemned as a spy, her fiance takes desperate measures, Sexton Blake detects a frame up, a nest of espionage agents is routed, a mission to occupied France is undertaken, Nazis are evaded, a dying man gives up his secrets, and a spymaster is exposed.



THE HOUSE ON THE HILL by John Drummond (John Newton Chance) (1945)



An unwelcome marriage proposal is made, a man doesn't know whether he's committed a murder, a mysterious house gives up its secrets, suspects are gathered and a theory expounded, Tinker is bound to an infernal mechanism, and shots are fired.
