A Mick Cardby Mystery


by David Hume


 Twenty men at Scotland Yard had spent nearly a year trying to discover the identity of the master criminal who called himself Jonathan Wilde. There were many odd features about the manís method of business. Those who worked for him mostly ended their criminal careers by pacing a cell floor, staring through a barred window, scowling at sundry warders, and regretting everything they could remember. Mick Cardby knew of these peculiarities when the firm of Cardby and Son received an unusual client. The man had one ambition in life ó to see that Jonathan Wilde took an early breakfast, a short walk, and a long drop. He offered the firm real money to work as hounds in the gallows hunt.
