The Mystery of the Jade Spear

Description: 

The Mystery of the Jade Spear is written by B. Fletcher Robinson. There was that about the little Inspector that ever invited the trust of the innocent, and also, to be frank, no inconsiderable proportion of the guilty, to their special disadvantage. I have noticed a similar confidence inspired by certain of the more famous doctors.

My highest ambition is that those who know something of the matter should.

At length it occurred to me I might further my purpose by writing a novel.
