Svengali Kill

By: Maxwell Grant

IN full view of four thousand people he is going to die. The hand that was writing relaxed. The pen shone in the light from the lamp on the desk. With eight thousand eyes focused on him, he will be murdered. Not only the perfect murder, but one that is foolproof and one for which I cannot be held.

The Narrative of Mr. James Rigby

By: Arthur Morrison

At the same time I have my own opinion as to what would have been the behaviour of any other man of average intelligence and courage in the same circumstances; more especially a man of my exceptional upb...
