Two classic mysteries for Charlie Chan to solve In this, the second volume of Leonaur's Charlie Chan series, the famous Chinese-Hawaiian detective finds himself grappling with the puzzle that lies 'Behind that Curtain'-the third of the six original novels by Earl Derr Biggers. Years ago in far away England, a solicitor is found murdered wearing silk Chinese slippers. Then a detective investigating a long cold case is also discovered murdered-wearing the same slippers! And what does this have to do with five missing young women? In Charlie Chan's fourth outing-The Black Camel-the 'camel', or death itself according to the Chinese proverb, has 'knelt by the gate' of a glamorous Hollywood actress who is visiting Honolulu. More accurately, she has been murdered-stabbed through the heart-and Inspector Chan must unravel the web of secrets and intrigue that surrounds her and the colourful cast of characters of her entourage-any one of whom could be a killer! These new editions of one crime fiction's most iconic detectives allow readers to join Charlie Chan as he creates progeny and triumphs of detection with equally inscrutable aplomb.
