What would you do if your doppelganger were committing crimes and making the police believe you were the perpetrator? In Danby Croker's case, he decides to retaliate! But that is only one of the problems besetting him in this set of interlinked stories. Given a job as an antique dealer, can he resist the temptations of earning some easy money through a bit of fencing and counterfeiting? And what on earth is he doing going round London dressed as a suffragette?!

Originally written in 1911 by the great author of detective stories R. Austin Freeman, this is a comic novel that may surprise those who know Freeman's work only through the "Dr. Thorndyke" stories!

"Judicious readers of criminal fiction have long since set a mark in their memory against the name of Dr Austin Freeman as the owner of a very agreeable and distinctive vein of invention." (The Times, on the first publication of The Exploits of Danby Croker in book form in 1916)
