THE RIDDLE OF THE TRAVELLING SKULL

“I knew full well when the Chinaman stopped me in the street and coolly asked me for a light for his cigarette, that a light for his cigarette was the last thing in the world that he really wanted!”

So begins one of the most stupefyingly convoluted web­work mysteries ever devised by the arcane mind of Harry Stephen Keeler. Many Keeler stories have a skull in them but in this one the skull has a starring role! And watch out for those Chinamen!
