You know pretty much immediately that this is not going to be your average mystery story A group of friends who meet regularly to discuss odd diverse supernatural topics such as ghosts ghost stories are interrupted by a strange man by the name of Pierre Fley who addresses himself to one of the group a Dr Charles Grimaud The stranger discusses a story about three coffins and then tells Grimaud that either Fley or his brother would be calling upon him soon It is not long afterwards that Grimaud is found dead in his study on the top floor of the house with the one door locked the windows too high for an exit and absolutely no footprints in the snow outside the house But the kicker is that someone came to the door was let in addressed two of the people in the house and was seen climbing the stairs and entering the study Sohow did it happen Dr Gideon Fell is called in and his investigation makes for one of the best locked room mysteries I ve ever read It starts off running and does not let up Most excellent a fine challenge to my overtired brain in trying to figure out how the heck this was doneI will caution you however that if you are planning to read any of the following books Fell in a very fine discourse upon the subject of crimes in hermetically sealed rooms tells how various authors plotted some well known locked room mysteries The books are along with some short stories that I won t mention here and do read them first before reading this one or they will probably be a disappointmentMystery of the Yellow Room by Gaston LerouxInitials Only by Anna Katherine GreenThe Forty Faces by Thomas and Mary HanshewThe Chinese Orange Mystery by Ellery ueenThe Big Bow Mystery by Israel ZangwillI think that fans of modern mystery novels may find Fell and his explanations a bit tedious in places but if you like these old golden age of mystery classics then this is probably among the best Definitely not for cozy readers Overall uite ingenious well written and well worth the sometimes slog through the five books before this one in the series I would probably put this as a must have for serious mystery readers

Locked room mysteries are just really magic tricks This book cleverly and overtly acknowledges this fact The beauty of the book lies in misdirection it lies in presenting all the facts but conning the reader into following the wrong ones it lies in creating a design which produces gasps of amazement and then nods of satisfaction All mystery stories do that obviously but this is a howdunnit wrapped up with a whodunit and so playing at a higher level than your standard mystery Of course as this book also acknowledges a locked room mystery has to pull off a trick that most magicians never dare it has to expose the workings Most magic tricks or illusions if we re being fancy or GOB Bluth are just allowed to stand for themselves the magician doesn t step back and expose the prosaic and mundane and downright devious way the trick was pulled off The Magic Circle wouldn t stand for it for one thing But a locked room mystery can t possibly get away with that The fun is in the workings it s in the downright devious way the murder was achieved That s why a book like this than any other stands and falls on its endingPost modern before there was such a term the characters at one point break off to acknowledge that yes indeed they are characters in a detective story and then debate other fictional locked room mysteries It s taking a long piece of literary criticism and whacking it into a novel and making it as seamless as possible And for that stretch it s most enjoyable showing a great academic and appreciation understanding of the form Elsewhere the prose on offer is downright stodgy and lumpy the London it conjures up flat and lifeless and seemingly borrowed third hard from an imitator of Sherlock Holmes and the characters just archetypes and cyphers But in that section which is placed about two thirds through we see the book acknowledge its flaws and gamble its own success or failure on the resolution It knows you re not going away being thrilled by the scintillating prose or the vibrant characterisation instead you re going to think of the mystery and how cleverly it was resolved and that and that alone will be your abiding memorySo how does the ending stack up Well obviously it s a little difficult to go into detail But it has a certain logical amusement to it It does the job it s there to do and won t disappoint anyone who wants clever trickiness But then clever trickiness may create a book readers admire however it won t create one they genuinely love
