"Londons walls resound with the incredible exploits of the 'Yellow Mark.' The spectacular actions of this mysterious criminal are on the increase holding up the Bank of England, robbing the imperial crown ... No one seems able to stop him. He is so audacious that he lets the police know in advance where he will commit his crimes, each time ridiculing Scotland Yard a little more. The apparent ease with which he evades police schemes begins to worry the highest authorities of the country. The Home Office asks Captain Francis Blake to solve the mystery and discover the identity of the man who hides behind the Yellow Mark. The captain immediately takes as partner his old friend, Professor Philip Mortimer, whose scientific knowledge will be invaluable in solving this extremely complex enigma.

Le piège diabolique by Edgar-P Jacobs( Book )

Quelle obscure folie a pu pousser Miloch (le savant fou de S.O.S. Météores, inventeur d'une machine à contrôler les intempéries) à faire de Mortimer son légataire universel ? L'honorable savant voit ainsi sa curiosité scientifique piquée au vif au point d'en oublier toute prudence. Passant outre la mise en garde du capitaine Blake, il se rue tête baissée dans un piège mortel. Miloch est en effet l'inventeur du Chronoscaphe, une machine à voyager dans le temps. En léguant son invention à Mortimer, il l'a par la même occasion attiré dans une épouvantable chausse-trappe destinée à le perdre dans l'infinie des temps. Voilà notre imprudent voyageur obligé de parcourir les siècles à la recherche de son époque. Il passera ainsi de l'ère préhistorique au Moyen Âge, avant d'affronter dans notre futur lointain, un tyran despotique et tout puissant qui a réduit l'humanité en esclavage. Ce voyage épique, terrifiant et bouleversant, constitue l'une de ses aventures les plus singulières, d'autant que cette fois-ci Blake ne pourra rien faire pour l'aider : quoi qu'il arrive, Mortimer est seul contre le temps
