The Dorrington Deed-Box: The Adventures of Horace Dorrington, Detective
In 1897 Morrison published seven short stories detailing the exploits of Horace Dorrington. In contrast to Morrison's earlier character Martin Hewitt, who one critic described as a "low-key, realistic, lower-class answer to Sherlock Holmes," Dorrington was "a respected but deeply corrupt private detective," "a cheerfully unrepentant sociopath who is willing to stoop to theft, blackmail, fraud, or cold-blooded murder to make a dishonest penny." These stories were collected as The Dorrington Deed Box (1897). Included:
THE NARRATIVE OF MR. JAMES RIGBY
THE CASE OF JANISSARY
THE CASE OF THE "MIRROR OF PORTUGAL"
THE AFFAIR OF THE "AVALANCHE BICYCLE AND TYRE CO., LIMITED"
THE CASE OF MR. LOFTUS DEACON
OLD CATER'S MONEY
