Karmesin: The World's Greatest Criminal - or Most Outrageous Liar
by Gerald Kersh
THIEF EXTRAORDINAIRE? Gerald Kersh (1911-1968) wrote amazing novels and hundreds of short stories about the weird and wonderful people he met during his lifetime. The most intriguing was Karmesin, a master thief and self-confessed genius. His robberies, cons and double-crosses involve split-second timing, almost supernatural foresight, and spine-tingling nerve. But is he telling Kersh the truth? For the first time all 17 short stories are collected in a single volume so that you can decide for yourself.
The seventh volume in Crippen & Landru's Lost Classics Series is edited and introduced by Paul Duncan, who has been researching Gerald Kersh for over 10 years in preparation for a biography.
