East of Suez (The Argosy Library)

In between writing the adventures of naturalists Peter Scarlet & Bradshaw and French Foreign Legion soldier Thibaut Corday, longtime Argosy author Theodore Roscoe penned several unconnected stories set in exotic locales. These, the East of Suez stories, are amongst the most popular stories ever to see print in the pages of Argosy magazine.

This collection contains all nine East of Suez-labeled stories, including his novel, Bentfinger, which detailed the story of a hooded slayer who baffled police from Scotland Yard to Cairo. Shooting his victims in the temple with deadly accuracy, he leaves just one clue: a typed card bearing the single word, “Bentfinger.”

The East of Suez stories are the epitome of high adventure in pulp fiction.
