Max Carrados is a blind detective who makes use of his remaining senses in such a way that his blindness is often not immediately apparent to others. Carrados enjoys the excitement of revealing his explanations of mysteries through powers of perception, which in his case are heightened in positive compensation for his visual impairment. The Max Carrados stories appeared alongside Sherlock Holmes in the Strand Magazine, in which they often had top billing, and frequently outsold his eminent contemporary at the time.
George Orwell wrote that, together with those of Conan Doyle and R. Austin Freeman, Max Carrados and The Eyes of Max Carrados are the only detective stories since Poe that are worth re-reading.
