What is the dark mill stream?
The Dark Mill Stream (1947) ["At eight and thirty years of age," this Gilbert Larose mystery begins, "Chester Hardacre was a well set-up, good-looking man, with good features and large, fearless blue eyes… Of strong personality, he was a well-known character in Hoichow, the chief seaport of Hainan Island, only a few miles distant from the mainland of China, where he had been a trader for fifteen years." But if he earned a lot, he also spent a lot. And he has a sinister personal reputation. Can he improve his life by moving to faraway England?] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
What is the name of the book that Gilbert Larose wrote in 1949?
The Storm Breaks (1949) [Mystery novel, featuring Gilbert Larose. The young and impressionable Mary Hinks meets Birtle Dane, who is "with a big firm of wine merchants in the wonderful city of Bordeaux", where he lives "in a big house upon the bank of the beautiful Garonne river". He tells her that life there is "much brighter and gayer than in England", and events move fast, particularly because Mary’s father is much impressed by the apparent wealth of his prospective son-in-law. If you think that Mary’s father is a poor judge of character, and that trouble lies ahead, you may well be right! And if Gilbert Larose is present, anything is possible!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
What is the house with the high wall about?
The House with the High Wall (1948) [Mystery novel, written in the aftermath of the Second World War. To judge from the opening words, Arthur Gask certainly did not believe that war solves anything: "The aftermath of war is always terrible. Peace is only for the dead, while unrest and disillusionment are the portion of the living. With the bloodshed dying down, the highways of the world are thronged with bewildered men and women walking aimlessly where once they trod with such resolution and such strength." Certainly in this novel we learn that the end of the war did not mark the end of murders — and of theft! In this case, of an emerald necklace. There is indeed a house, located in Suffolk, and after the war it was supplied with a high wall: six feet high and four miles long! And behind this wall lives Mrs. Dona Bianca and her peacocks. She is from South America, and is said to be rich — how else could she afford the peacocks? No need to say more, except that Gilbert Larose turns up opportunely. He is now almost fifty, "a smiling, happy-looking man, carrying his age well." One thing has not changed: his ability to solve mysteries and ensure that the truth comes out!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
What year was Marauders by Night set?
Marauders by Night (1951) [A Gilbert Larose novel, set in 1925! As the novel opens, a very serious conference is underway at Scotland Yard. In the Eastern Counties (Essex, Suffolk, and Norfolk) there have been no fewer than five major robberies. In attendance is Gilbert Larose, "then in his twenty-ninth year and the youngest Detective Inspector at Scotland Yard… a good-looking young fellow with a pleasant smiling face. Transferred from Australia to the Criminal Investigation Department in London, in four years he had earned an almost legendary reputation." And Larose’s achievements in this case will only increase this reputation!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]

Where did Doctor Dolittle travel?
As you might expect, this second Doctor Dolittle book is about the Doctor’s travels outside England, including such places as Spain, Africa, and South America. It is narrated by Tommy Stubbins, like the Doctor a resident of Puddleby-on-the-Marsh, but at nine and a half years of age much younger than the Doctor! Tommy is describing from the perspective of old age (for many years have passed) "that part of the great man’s life which I myself saw and took part in". And what a lot he had seen! The novel is much longer than The Story of Doctor Dolittle , lavishly illustrated by Lofting himself, and is full of information about Doctor Dolittle’s adventures outside England. For a summary of the book, have a look at the Wikipedia article; better yet, download the ebook and start reading!

Where is Gilbert Larose in The House on the Island?
The House on the Island (1931) [The start of this mystery finds Gilbert Larose not in Adelaide, nor in any part of his beloved Australia, but in London, Scotland Yard to be specific, in the office of the Chief Commissioner. Yes, he is now internationally famous! "Why, it’s proverbial in Australia that Larose can reason back as quickly as he can reason forward, and they say that when a murder’s been committed, no matter how long after, he can still see the very shadow that the murderer cast upon the wall." He has been brought in to deal with a crime wave in the East Counties that has been going on for six months. But immediately on landing in England he makes it clear that he is no ordinary detective, by foiling a pickpocket who was attempting to rob him. Did he turn the pickpocket in? No, he took him to dinner, persuaded him that he also was a pickpocket, and over that dinner learned a great deal about the realities of crime in the capital: "it was such an opportunity for me to learn from the opposite camp how you gentlemen here work, for I was able to go into places I could not have got into in any other way." Talk about a quick study! That’s the end of the trailer; for the main feature, download the ebook!] EPUB [University of Adelaide]
