Tracked by a Tattoo by Fergus Hume (1859 - 1932).


Mysteries abound in this crime novel by Fergus Hume. Mr. Fanks, detective of Scotland Yard, is not all he seems, for when off-duty, he assumes his real identity of Octavius Rixton, well-to-do idler. When the scent of a murder reaches him, he is instantly Mr. Fanks and on the pursuit. A guilty looking innkeeper nicknamed Queen Beelzebub and a suspicious doctor named Renshaw further complicate his beginning investigation, and he finds the body is a man with a tattoo on his arm that has been partially obliterated by a knife. Where no one is as he seems the mystery can only deepen before its solution. ( Don W. Jenkins)

I'll set this up, back soon

Anne
OK , MW set up .
There wasn't a number of sections filled in so there were no sections automatically generated. I've started to fill them in then realised 2 things
I didn't know if you wanted to combine any chapters
And I actually find it easier to add the titles as I add sections
So I'll wait to hear from you, you can add the sections yourself as you add the sections
or I'll add the number of sections you want

Sorry, I missed that slot when filling things in. There are 35 Sections. I'll fill in the titles as I do them.

Thanks,
Don

I just went to check it out (i.e. The Crimson Cryptogram) and got the following message:

Item not available
The item is not available due to issues with the item's content.

I was, however, able to download the zip file. Still, this is weird.

That is weird - it plays on Archive. I listened to the M4B made from the zip file. I'll pass it on to the MC.

Claudia,

I apologize for that. Thank You for pointing it out. It should be fixed now.

Using the tried and true method of suspecting the least likely person, my money is on the valet. I think they should be asking everyone to roll up their left sleeves. I think they are going to find more tattoos than you can shake a needle at.

I will be out of commission, literally, for a few weeks, so don't worry. I have to have surgery to repair an aortic aneurysm. Believe me, I'd rather record this whole book in one day than that.

Hope it all goes well.
My approach is to try and pick something there is no reason for in the plot so far

Section 1 needs the full disclosure. It's the abbreviated version.
Sections 2-5 are PL OKAY. :clap:

I have one tattoo. Yellow rose with red flowers and leaves. It's just two inches by three. Rode my Harley with a group from Casper, Wyoming over to Denver for a concert at Red Rocks. We camped out and stopped by a famous shop. So I got one. More than thirty years later and it's faded.

Too early to say who is my suspect. We have the major players all lined up though.

Come back to us when you can. Dawn and Petey

I'm baaack! It's been a difficult and "interesting" road, but we're settling in here in our new home and we're liking it a lot, despite temperatures daily of 108 or so. It's a dry heat.

I hate to say this, but it looks like we have some more doofuses for detectives. Have they never heard of twins? Maybe they haven't read any Fergus Hume stories. She's going to be a worthy opponent.

We'll keep it rolling now.
