The Gold Bag

The Gold Bag is a detective story by American author Carolyn Wells.

This is the second mystery story involving the Sherlock Holmes like detective Fleming Stone who is brought in to solve another mystery.

This case involves a wealthy entrepreneur who is found murdered in the study of his mansion. The mansion is equipped with suspicious servants, the millionaire has a beautiful niece. And what is the agenda of the private secretary and what does the victims will state?

Circumstantial evidence in the shape of a gold mesh bag points to a woman as the criminal, and the only possible one is the niece with whom the detective promptly falls in love, though she is already engaged to her uncle's secretary, an alliance which the dead man insisted must be discontinued, otherwise he would disinherit the girl.

Fleming Stone is brought in to help local Detective Herbert Burroughs to solve the mystery that hinges on a gold bag and a pair of shoes.

The Gold Bag was first published in 1911. Also available as audiobook, total running time: 6 hours, 43 min. Reading by Richard Kilmer.
