Daring Heists, Impossible Patterns, and Deadly Mysteries Victor Canning (1911-1986) created three unique series chronicling the mysteries of some of the most original characters in detection fiction. This collection begins with the misadventures of the Minerva Club and also included are the enigmatic cases of the Department of Patterns, a French police agency who look for clues and connections between seemingly irrelevant events. Under the guidance of the jovial, and hard nosed Papa Grand, new recruits are taught to see patterns in even the most obscure of places. Finally, follow the journeys of Dr. Kang who finds mystery in his travels around the world. Never one to hide from trouble, Dr. Kang proves his talent for attracting death is surpassed only by his talent for avoiding it. The Minerva Club collects 24 stories, selected and edited by John Higgins and is the 27th offering in the Lost Classics Series
