Gask, Arthur: The Dark Mill Stream. V2. 9 February 2013

Gask, Arthur: The Dark Mill Stream (1947)

Arthur Cecil Gask (10 July 1869—25 June 1951), dentist and novelist, was born on 10 July 1869 at St Marylebone, London, fourth of five children of Charles Gask, merchant, and his wife Fanny, née Edis.[1]

Gask emigrated to Adelaide, South Australia in 1920, where he set up practice as a dentist. He began writing crime fiction while waiting for his patients and in 1921 paid for the publication of his first novel, The Secret of the Sandhills, which was an immediate success.

Over a period of forty years Gask wrote over thirty books as well as contributing short stories to The Mail in Adelaide. Most of his novels described the activities of a detective, Gilbert Larose, in solving crimes. Gask's work was translated into several European languages, serialised in newspapers and broadcast on radio. He also wrote short stories.
—Information adapted from Wikipedia

This book, by some accounts, is the 21st of the Gilbert Larose Mysteries. I have added the cover at the front, deleted the second internal copy of the cover, updated some formatting and added “curly quotes.” At the suggestion of bobcdy, I have indented the paragraphs and slightly decreased the paragraph spacing. Any other criticisms, suggestions, and the like would be appreciated.

Synopsis:
A large sum of money was stolen from a London bank and hidden in an old mill in a lonely and unfrequented part of Essex. It is found by two men already deep in crime, and the dreadful murder of one of them follows.

Gilbert Larose, the one-time great international detective, when discovery seems well-nigh impossible, nevertheless, picks up the trail—almost from what he hears in the whisperings of the wind—and it leads him to an important country gentleman living in an historic mansion in Norfolk.

Upated to Version 2

This newer version (V2) has a couple of changes. At the suggestion of bobcdy, I have indented the paragraphs and slightly decreased the paragraph spacing. Any other criticisms, suggestions, and the like would be appreciated.

Thanks,
chip
