I’m reading Inspector French’s Greatest Case (1924), the first in the Inspector French Mystery series by Freeman Wills Crofts, and I couldn’t resist the temptation of sharing here the Introduction that Crofts himself wrote in 1935 about his character. So far I’ve read and enjoyed The Hog’s Back Mystery, 1933 (Inspector French #10) and Mystery in the Channel, 1931 (Inspector French #7). And now I look forward to reading the following books in the series: Inspector French and the Starvel Tragedy (1927) a.k.a. The Starvel Hollow Tragedy; The Sea Mystery (1928); Sir John Magill’s Last Journey (1930); The 12.30 from Croydon (1934) a.k.a. Wilful and Premeditated; Mystery on Southampton Water (1934) a.k.a. Crime on the Solent; Crime at Guildford (1935) a.k.a. The Crime at Nornes; The Loss of the “Jane Vosper” (1936); Found Floating (1937); Enemy Unseen (1945); and Death of a Train (1946). Not to mention his early books The Cask (1920) and The Groote Park Murder (1923).
