The Old Man in the Corner

Book cover
A collection of detective stories from Baroness Emma Orczy de Orczi, a Hungarian-British novelist, playwright and artist, best remembered as the author of “The Scarlet Pimpernel” (1905). “The Old Man in the Corner”, published in 1909, relies mostly upon sensationalistic “penny dreadful” newspaper accounts. The protagonist, main serial hero of the author, is an amateur detective Bill Owen, nicknamed “the Old Man in the Corner”, who solves the most complicated riddles without leaving his armchair, just like Nero Wolfe is to do later.
