The game's afoot in the 1920s exploits of Sir Henry Marquis, Chief of the Criminal Investigation Department of Scotland Yard (C.I.D.), known as "the Sleuth of St. James's Square". A middle-aged Englishman with short cropped grey hair, Marquis seems more like a typical outdoorsman than a policeman. Although a Londoner, he directs secret service operations in Asia, and many of his cases take place in distant countries, including the U.S.

These stories carefully combine ratiocination with dramatic flare.

So there you have it (at least you do if you know what "ratiocination" means ).

Enjoy!
