Famed Inspector Hanaud, a professional policeman from the French Sûreté, is stout and relying on psychological insights for his investigation - This time, he is attempting to take a brief holiday after cracking a big case, but as often happens, he soon finds himself enmeshed in a confounding mystery. The Affair At The Semiramis Hotel (1917), a novella, is the second Hanaud mystery - Did the robbery/murder really happen or was it the mescal-induced hallucination of the witness? The first novel is At The Villa Rose (1910). The third is The House Of The Arrow (1924) (there are seven through 1949, available at project gutenberg Australia).
