Q. Patrick - Hunt In The Dark

This is the third collection of stories of a planned five volumes from Crippen/Landru to feature the works of Richard Webb and Hugh Wheeler, who were better known under their three pseudonyms, Q. Patrick, Patrick Quentin, and Jonathan Stagge.

These six stories, which includes two previously uncollected novellas, have familiar characters like Peter and Iris Duluth and Doctor Hugh Westlake as well as standalone short works. Under all three pseudonyms, they were known for their classic, completely clued mysteries. This is the first time that many of these stories have seen print, since their original publication over 50 years ago.

This edition contains an introduction by mystery historian Curtis Evans.

Limited edition hardcover SOLD OUT.

Trade paperback available.
