Short mysteries involving the blind detective Carrados. Max Carrados is one of the most unusual detectives in all fiction.

„The secret of the league” is a dystopian novel written by Ernest Bramah in 1907. It was first published as „What might have been: the story of a social war”, but later was republished in 1909 as „The secret of the league. „The Secret of the League” is kind of an underground oddity of a novel.
