The Detective O'Malley MEGAPACK®: 21 Police Procedurals

Multiple File Formats

This volume collects 21 stories featuring Detective O'Malley from the pages of Collier's. They date from 1930 through the early 1940s. William MacHarg's title character is a lot of fun and sure to appeal to fans of classic puzzle mysteries.

Of the series (which numbers about 80 stories), Mike Grost wrote: "The brief tales are heavily plot oriented. Some of them have mystery puzzle plots, in others the killer's identity is simply found through police work. O'Malley puts great emphasis on coming up with ingenious ideas to make the killer confess, or make a damaging admission of guilt; the stories contain numerous gimmicks of this type."

Included are:

  • The Green Paint
  • The Ring
  • The Sleeptalker
  • Fingerprints
  • The Fourth Degree
  • In A Mirror
  • The Wrong Hat
  • Soiled Diamonds
  • The Locked Door
  • The High Bridge
  • Too Many Enemies
  • No Fingerprints
  • Too Many Miles
  • Three Bullets
  • The Mind Reader
  • Through The Cabin Window
  • Spilled Perfume
  • Help From Uncle Sam
  • Mrs. Walder's Diamonds
  • City Wise
  • Deceiving Clothes

Product Information
File Size:

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
