The Black Book
Examiner of Plays' Summary:
The 'black book' of this play is nothing more than a note book with dossiers of criminals kept by the detective, Cleek: there is no billing about it. A terrible criminal called Kreutz invents a deadly poison nothing more is done with it however, than to poison an old vicar who has made a will in favour of the villain, believing the hero to be dead, and after scenes of revolver business, gagging, disguising and so forth, in the detective's office, Kreutz's laboratory and a village inn, the usual result is achieved. There is nothing special to remark from the point of view of the Lord Chamberlain's office. Recommended for licence. G. S. Street.
