The Crevice by William J. Burns
By: (1861-1932)

The Crevice by William J. Burns is a gripping mystery novel that kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. The story follows detective John Graham as he investigates a series of gruesome murders in a small town, uncovering dark secrets and uncovering hidden truths along the way.

The author does a fantastic job of setting the scene and building tension throughout the book. The pacing is fast-paced and the plot is full of twists and turns that kept me guessing until the very end. The characters are well-developed and realistic, making it easy to become invested in their lives and their fates.

Overall, The Crevice is a must-read for fans of mystery and suspense novels. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a thrilling and thought-provoking read. It's an engaging story that will keep you guessing until the very end.

Book Description:
The sudden death of wealthy and prominent financier, Pennington Lawton from an apparent heart attack, followed by the shocking revelation of his impending bankruptcy, leaves his sole heir and only daughter, Anita, distraught and nearly penniless. Nonetheless, she is determined to unravel the mystery surrounding her father’s death and the loss of his great fortune. To this end she engages the famous detective, Henry Blaine who is determined to unravel the tangled web of deception and restore both her father’s reputation and Anita’s inheritance.

Isabel Ostrander, who also wrote under the pseudonyms Christopher B. Booth, Robert Orr Chipperfield, David Fox, and Douglas Grant, was a prolific author of early American crime fiction. In The Crevice she collaborated with coauthor, William J. Burns, who served for three years as director of the Bureau of Investigation (a predecessor of the FBI)and was also famous for his exploits as a private detective. His cases served as material for the “true” crime stories he later wrote and published in detective magazines in the early 20th century.

A very good story, very well narrated throughout once you get used to the 'clipped' manner of pronunciation.
