Comment: 1956, Charlton Publications. The Mystery of the Doomed Daredevil: This story is about a newspaper man that gets loads of scoops of accidents happening for one particular reason which should be easy to figure out from probably the first page of the story. Sherlock Holmes Greatest Challenge: In a cabin in Canada a man is murdered. Again, the perp is pretty obvious from very early on. Double Dice (text): The story is good but has nothing at all to do with Sherlock Holmes. The Overseas Smuggling Racket: Some crooks have been smuggling diamonds and Holmes is called in to help on the case. A painting and some buttons are the major clues he finds to solve it. The Danger Run: This is about trucking where a driver has set it up for the truck to be hijacked in order to make money for himself. Another driver is with him. This happens a couple of more times when the police finally catch them.
