    Doyle, Arthur Conan

  1. Author: Doyle, Arthur Conan
    Title:  Mystery of Cloomber
    Date: 1889
    Genre: fiction
    Note Relating to Cather: "For the most part [mystery stories] are read and thrown aside and forgotten as quickly as a puzzle that is solved, for they contain none of the elements of lasting satisfaction. Of course there are notable exceptions. ... there is Conan Doyle's The Sign of the Four and The Mystery of Cloomber that have established their author's reputation for fiction that is highly sensational and yet by no means devoid of good workmanship and literary skill."
