Mystery & Suspense
Master of thrilling detective

L. Ron Hubbard’s stories of mystery, detection, and investigative procedure—the crime-solving processes he characterized as “the art of observation”—were exceedingly well-wrought and warmly received from their initial appearance in 1934. Fashioned with his fast, spare, vivid style, they plunge the reader into the heart of a murder mystery, the inside circle of danger within the maze of crime, always with the defining authenticity of reality that epitomizes L. Ron Hubbard’s fiction, whatever the genre.

With mystery, as with adventure, he refused to write in a vacuum or to speculate about what could be known. To create an authentic foundation for his detective fiction, he interviewed a wide spectrum of law enforcement officials, police officers, and federal investigators.
