Ten of the most intriguing unsolved New Zealand murders from the Jazz age are reopened and reinvestigated, using modern techniques. A Christchurch publican shot in a crowded pub, an Indian fruiterer beaten to death in Hawera and a trail of destruction left across Waikato and the Bay of Plenty by a mass murderer - these are just some of the fascinating unsolved murders profiled in Shot in the Dark. While the ten cases profiled may sound like very modern crimes, they were all committed in the years between the First and Second World Wars. Scott Bainbridge reopens each case by examining the victims' lives, the events leading up to the crimes, the original police investigations and the conclusions reached by police at the time. He then applies modern investigative techniques to the cases sometimes coming to startling conclusions.

Musaicum Books presents to you this unique and meticulously edited adventure collection: Philo Gubb is a small-town paperhanger who admires Sherlock Holmes and learns a deductive technique by correspondence course. Gubb differs from many mainstream fictional detectives in that he is not brilliant, nor egocentric, but he is persistent, good-natured, and occasionally displays common sense. Also in contrast, his work may be characterized by elaborate disguises that deceive nobody, theories that are overhauled at every clue, and the often unintentional solving of mysteries.
