Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

U.S. Navy Lieutenant Steve Craig is in one hell of a mess. Being accused of murder is bad enough, but the local police are convinced he’s killed his own father. Alfred Hitchcock couldn’t have conceived a more diabolical plot for Cary Grant . . . and now, for Steve Craig, the plot is about to get down and dirty.

Steve’s safe from the cops as long as he stays aboard his Navy ship—but the word safe isn’t in his vocabulary. He slips off the vessel and vanishes into the seamy underside of the city, determined to find out who took his father’s life . . . even if it means risking his own.

He follows a trail of smoke and mirrors and sudden violence to the Brass Keys to Murder. With them, Steve will seek to unlock the terrible truth behind his father’s death . . . and an astonishing secret that will change his life—and that of the woman he loves—forever.

Ron knew well the life at sea and the world surrounding it. Not only was he the son of a naval officer, he traveled back and forth across the Pacific, plied the China coast in a working schooner and commanded an expedition aboard a four-masted ship to the Caribbean. He walked the waterfronts of countless ports, sharing stories with the colorful—and often shady—characters inhabiting them. Originally published in April 1935 under the pen name Michael Keith, Brass Keys to Murder is a direct result of those adventures.

Synopsis:

Navy Lieutenant Steve Craig is in one hell of a mess—accused of murdering his own father. Hitchcock couldn’t have conceived a more diabolical plot for Cary Grant . . . and now, for Steve Craig, the plot’s about to get down and dirty. Determined to find out who took his father’s life—even if it means risking his own—Steve follows a trail of smoke and mirrors and sudden violence to a terrible truth and an astonishing secret that will change his life forever.

Synopsis:

Unlock your inner Sherlock with this bloodcurdling tale. Naval Lieutenant Steve Craig has been falsely accused of having murdered his father, a ship captain in the merchant marine. Given less than forty-eight hours to find the real killer and clear his name, Craig embarks on a trail to secure a set of keys that will unlock the secrets hidden inside ancient Chinese treasure chests.

Pursued by the police on one hand and a devious, unknown assailant on the other, Craig must thread his way through a maze of smugglers, thugs and treacherous underworld bosses. In a hair-raising race against time, he uncovers one vital clue after another until he comes face to face with death itself. “Listeners will have a genuine sense that they are back in the Golden Age of radio.” —The Strand Magazine

About the Author
