Blind Max & The Mystery Author

A physical disability often serves to heighten one’s other senses and powers -- a truth you’ve very possibly observed in people you know. British author Ernest Bramah made use of such traits in developing his blind detective character, Max Carrados. Bramah produced three books of Carrados episodes: Max Carrados, The Eyes of Max Carrados and Max Carrados Mysteries.

Ernest Bramah (1868-1942) was the pen name of a London writer who wrote many other books besides the Carrados chronicles. He shunned public recognition so effectively that few during his day knew his real identity -- a real-life mystery that surrounded his wonderful fictitious mysteries.
