Connoisseurs of the Mystery genre are well-acquainted with Melville Davisson Post (1869 - 1930), the American crime and mystery writer and creator of the character Uncle Abner, the West Virginian, backwoodman equivalent of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes.

Post wrote twenty-two Uncle Abner tales; he is considered one of America's finest mystery writers.

If you are looking for the Uncle Abner mysteries, you will find them in Uncle Abner, Master Of Mysteries, which features the popular tale The Angel of the Lord.
