Froest, Frank (1916) The Maelstrom (1st Edition)




The Maelstrom by Frank Froest is "a rattling good detective story that will please those who like to read the details of the criminal hunt, with a love story involved, that is also interesting. Hallet, an American newspaper man, is surprised in a London fog .... " Made into a silent film of the same name in 1917 by Vitagraph Co. of America.

Mr. Frank Froest, author of "The Maelstrom," has a wonderful advantage over the ordinary writer of detective stories for, until a short time ago, he was the Superintendent of the Criminal Investigation Department of New Scotland Yard. Mr. Froest achieved the highest post in the detective service after passing through every grade of detective work. There is probably no detective alive that has had wider experience or greater reputation in international police circles. His first book, The Grell Mystery," was acclaimed the best detective story of 1915. "The Maelstrom" the publisher believes will add to his reputation.
