Bedford-Jones, H.: The Mardi Gras Mystery, v.1 11 April 2010
One of the few mystery novels by Mr. Bedford-Jones (1887-1949) available on the internet. This is a tale of armed robbery and murder in New Orleans. Another epub version is available from archive.org but this MR epub is taken from the image pdf of Google Books.
"I took full precautions, gentlemen. The hour of danger is past, and the notorious bandit has not arrived—or, if he has arrived, he is now in the hands of the law. After all, that note may have been something in the nature of a carnival jest! So up with your cups, my friends—a lifelong health to Mardi Gras, and damnation to prohibition and the Midnight Masquer!"

Thanks for this, Bob. I've never heard of Bedford-Jones before, so I looked him up at Wikipedia. Having grown up in New Orleans, I'll give this one a try.
