THE MYSTERY OF THE HAUNTED TRAIL
by Anon. (S. G. Shaw)

Illustrator: Gil (?)

Notes: Monocle-wearing Furg the Fur Man is the manager of the All-Alaska Fur Store Ltd. — a London firm that upon its inception quickly begins to snatch trade away from bigger, better established companies. When a Canadian competitor named Jeff Wallard attempts to shoot Furg during an auction, Sexton Blake's curiosity is aroused. Furg never bids ... so where do his furs come from? Commissioned to investigate, Blake goes to Vine Street police station to interview Wallard and learns that the man was trying to avenge his brother, who died after stumbling into one of Furg's traps on the 'Haunted Trail' in Canada's Strong Woods. This trading passage has been avoided since Furg appeared in the district and has gained a reputation for being haunted and unlucky. Some weeks later, Blake and Tinker arrive in North West Canada and trek to the fur-trapping country around Strong Woods. At the first trading post they come to, they find that its commissioner has been fatally stabbed, evidently because he had discovered something about the Haunted Trail. He says one word — "McEnemy" — and dies. The detective and Tinker proceed to 'Big Divide', the next trading post. Leaving Tinker to guard the huskies, Blake enters the post and is confronted by a huge brute of a man known as The Red Factor. This villain, with his sidekick, Francois the Wolf, overpowers Blake and leaves him tied up before making a getaway. Tinker comes to the rescue and he and Blake discover a huge stash of furs in a cellar beneath the trading post. Plainly, there is illicit business going on. When a man — McEnemy — turns up, Blake holds him at gunpoint and forces an admission from him: he has been helping fur poachers to smuggle out furs beneath the noses of the officially sanctioned companies. Further explanations are interrupted by the arrival of a mountie — Trooper Bell — who arrests Blake for the murder of the commissioner and takes him and Tinker away for questioning. McEnemy awaits the return of The Red Factor and, upon that villain's arrival, informs him that as soon as Blake's identity becomes known, the game will be up. The Red Factor races south along the Haunted Trail and warns his gang — which preys on fur trappers who pass along the trail — that Blake is on the warpath. While the detective, still in Trooper Bell's custody, is delayed by a blizzard, the crook reaches a telegraph office and sends a message to Furg. Three days later, Blake reaches the same office and receives messages that prove to Bell his innocence. He sends the Mounty to join forces that are, at his orders, surrounding the Strong Woods. These forces round up the gang, one of whom confesses to killing the commissioner of the trading post. Furg's stash of smuggled furs are destroyed by a mysterious fire and the fur man claims the insurance. Blake knows that arson was committed but cannot lay the crime at Furg's door.

Trivia: This is an abridged version of a story that appeared under the same title in UNION JACK issue 1,257 (1927). The review is based on a reading of that issue.

RAIDERS PASSED
by John Hunter

THE SEXTON BLAKE LIBRARY · 3rd series · Issue 1 · Jun. 1941 · Amalgamated Press · 6d

Illustrator: Eric Parker

Other content: Crook Colonies (article)

Notes: This is the first issue of the Sexton Blake Library's 3rd series. A British diplomat, George Randall, is due to visit Binali in East African to pursuade the tribal chiefs of the area to ally with Britain. A fortune in gold has been sent ahead as a gift to his hosts. But before his mission starts, Randall disappears. His daughter, Diane, ask Sexton Blake to investigate. Clues lead the detective to a wharf on the Thames. The owner, Abe Gunson, denies any knowledge of Randall. Later, though, he brings a man named Prendergast to see Captain Dack, the owner of the Mary Ann Trinder. Prendergast wants to hire the ship to take him to Binali. Meanwhile, Tinker falls foul of a gangster named Lou Valeski and is imprisoned in an empty house. Valeski, together with Prendergast, Gunson, Diane and a number of henchmen, boards the Mary Ann Trinder and sets sail for Binali. Dack soon finds that he has a stowaway aboard — Tinker! The lad, after overhearing Valeski's plans, had managed to escape and secretly board the ship after first sending a message to Blake instructing him to fly to Binali. Dack tries to keep Tinker hidden but, during a battle with a U-boat, Blake's assistant is spotted. The submarine is sunk and four survivors are taken aboard. Prendergast conspires with them and, one night, with their help, he and his men hijack Dack's ship, imprisoning Tinker and the crew. Upon arrival in Binali, the villains begin their negotiations with the tribal chiefs, pretending to represent the British government when, in fact, they simply want to steal the gold. Dack escapes and allies himself with a chief named Karsa. Prendergast and Valeski, on the other hand, align themselves with Lanton, a well-educated but devious rival chief. The two factions battle, with Dack's group ultimately triumphant. Karsa is made the new leader of the region, Dack secretly lays claim to some of the gold, and Sexton Blake arrives on the final page just in time to see everything cleaned up.

Rating: ★★★★☆ A superbly well-plotted and very entertaining tale but Blake and Tinker are pushed so far into the sidelines that this novel barely justifies its inclusion in THE SEXTON BLAKE LIBRARY.
