On the surface, J.G. Reeder is a shabby little police officer with red hair and weak eyes, but underneath his timid appearance lies a razor-sharp mind and the ability to think like a criminal. Here are two thrilling episodes torn from his casebook. In 'The Treasure House', will Mr Reeder discover a connection between Larry O'Ryan, a burglar he befriends, and the murder of an ex-constable? In 'The Shadow Man', Mr Reeder's talents are stretched across oceans as he tries to solve a series of cross-Atlantic bank frauds.
