Packed with two dozen stories, The Master of Mysteries offers a twentieth-century, mystical twist on the classic consulting detective genre made popular by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. With Astro, the self-proclaimed seer of secrets," author Gelett Burgess gives us a detective just as observant and brilliant as Sherlock Holmes - but with feelings.
Astro, the Seer of Secrets, and his lovely assistant, Valeska,sound more like a magic act than a private detection team.
Astro hides his powers of observation and reasoning beneath a turban and a cape, pretending to read palms and consult crystals while in fact keenly observing details that most people - police included - miss. Valeska, his beautiful blonde protege, assists Astro with his investigations, all the while honing her own skills.
Called upon by believers and skeptics both, they adeptly recover whatis missing - a rare Shakespeare folio, a missing husband, a kidnapped child - while also solving actual murders. But it is their burgeoning romance, and their mutual zeal to work pro bono where matters of the heart are at stake, that set this crime-solving duo apart.
