Short Mystery Story
The Benevolent Banker
and Other Enigmas
In the Enigma of the
Benevolent Banker, the eponymous character
having become widely known for his charitable donations disappears
during a garden party at his country home; a series of apparently
ritualistic murders occurring on both sides of the Anglo-Scottish
border brings terror to the wild beauty of the region in The Fiend of
Far Fell; the terrible secret of a reclusive member of a tiny
community reveals anguish on a remote island in the Western Isles in
The Enigma of Sister Sophia;
and the curious theft and return of a
mysterious painting in Peril in a
Painted Garden leads to the discovery
of a sinister political conspiracy.
In this third collection of stories, Alexander Dunkley chronicles
further consequences of the restless curiosity of his friend Hugo
(83 pages, stapled, card cover).
