THE CHARLIE CHAN SAGA CONTINUES!!!

These are great looking books and the first two they did last year were great fun to read. It’s really nice to see them back in print.

Here’s the official release

Academy Chicago Re-releases Next Two Titles in Charlie Chan Mystery Series

Behind That Curtain, The Black Camel, The House Without a Key and The Chinese Parrot

“It takes a special kind of wit to resurrect Charlie Chan, as Academy Chicago has done…”
–Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review


Earl Derr Biggers’ crackling six-volume series featuring the clever, chubby Chinese Detective of the Honolulu Police Department continues with the re-release of Behind That Curtain and The Black Camel.

In the third installment, BEHIND THAT CURTAIN (Paperback, 324pp., $14.95, 9780897335843), Charlie Chan finds himself back in San Francisco working with an inspector from Scotland Yard to investigate a series of murders in which each victim is found wearing ominous Chinese slippers.

The two remaining Charlie Chan novels will be published this fall by Academy Chicago.
