Max Carrados

Author: Ernest Bramah
This volume collects MAX CARRADOS' 42 Cases, published originally in 4 collections, by acclaimed English author Ernest Bramah. Max Carrados is a blind detective who uses his remaining senses in such a way that his blindness is often not immediately apparent to others. George Orwell wrote that, together with those of Conan Doyle and R. Austin Freeman, Max Carrados and The Eyes of Max Carrados, "are the only detective stories since Poe that are worth re-reading." This volume contains: MAX CARRADOS, THE EYES OF MAX CARRADOS, MAX CARRADOS MYSTERIES, THE BRAVO OF LONDON Ernest Bramah's humorous works were ranked with Jerome K Jerome, and W.W. Jacobs, his detective stories with Conan Doyle, his politico-science fiction with H.G. Wells and his supernatural stories with Algernon Blackwood. George Orwell acknowledged that Bramah's book, What Might Have Been, influenced his Nineteen Eighty-Four. Dorothy Sayers also mention Kai Lung, his other main character, in several of her books.
