Wonderful Mystery Short Story Collection2012年5月11日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
With the police hot on his tail, Peter Ruff decides to turn from a life of crime to the more lucrative (and personally safer) life of a private investigator. With his ties to the underworld and his skill at disguise, Peter is the perfect sleuth. Along with his trusted and beautiful assistant, Violet Brown, Mr. Ruff is brilliantly successful in his new career. As his reputation for solving crime grows, he is noticed and adopted as a leader by a large conglomerate of criminals who have chosen to turn their skills to good. Unfortunately, his success also gains the enmity of many people, including his former fiancee's new husband and a notorious German spy. How he outwits these two men-and others-while satisfying his taste for adventure (and possibly falling in love along the way) is told in this delightful collection of short stories by a mystery writer whose talent, unfortunately, has been forgotten by many people. If you are a fan of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle or Maurice Leblanc or other writers of their ilk, you're sure to enjoy this collection. I certainly did!
Two different books with the words "Double Four" in the title.2016年4月29日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
There are actually two books with similar titles. This one "Peter Ruff and the Double Four" was published in 1912. The other one is simply entitled "The Double Four" published in 1911. "The Double Four" is a completely different novel. Nevertheless, both are equally well written.
Best of many.2013年7月14日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
E. Phillips Oppenheim was an author I originally found at a junk sale. His work is addictive. Peter Ruff has been my favorite of 6 of these works so far. It keeps you interested and wanting to go back to the book to get to the next chapter.

Very poor quality -- I returned it2012年9月11日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
This reprint is the poorest quality I've purchased in years. The font looks like an old typewriter manuscript, and the print is quite faint and hard to read. I would have given it one star except for the fact that all the text was presumably included and this title by Oppenheim is hard to find. But I'd rather search for a better copy, even it costs a bit more. I returned it for a refund.
