"Chester K. Steele" was a pseudonym of the Stratemeyer Syndicate,
founded by Edwin Stratemayer. He wrote eleven "Horatio Alger"
titles, and went on to produce series including "The Rover Boys,"
"The Bobsey Twins," and "Tom Swift," hiring ghost writers to
produce the books under specific pen names.
"The Diamond Cross Mystery" is a one of a series intended for an
older audience than the children's books Stratemeyer normally
produced. It features the reluctant detective Colonel Ashley and
his Negro servant Shag. Only the first, "The Mansion of Mystery,"
was written by Stratemeyer.
In "The Diamond Cross Mystery," Colonel Ashley must solve the
murder of the proprietor of a jewelry store. The Colonel would
prefer to be fishing, but crimes have a way of interrupting his
reading of "Walton's Complete Angler,"
