This only adds to Fell’s suspicions about an earlier family death, one he has posited was murder rather than accidental. Unlike Hercule Poirot or Henry Bencolin Carr’s Poirot-like Parisian detectiveHoombre doesn’t instantly know who the murderer is or how the crime was committed.
For this reason Doctor Gideon Fell is called to help in the investigation. It’s like Scooby-Doo, only for adults. Return to Book Page.
There can be little doubt that Carr was, and still remains the single most important author in dikson Locked Room and Impossible Crime sub-genre! Dickson Carr was capable of some excellent writing, though like other mystery authors notably Agatha Christie his work suffered as a result of cranking out too many books too quickly.
Hag’s Nook (Dr. Gideon Fell, #1) by John Dickson Carr
Martin has every reason to be afraid; more than one Starberth heir has met an hhombre end. John Dickson Carr was born in Uniontown, Pennsylvania, in Fell in Hag’s Nook and several other novels that followed. He may even have created it; I don’t know. In addition to all that, he had a personality that seamlessly brought out clues from people around him that helped him get to the bottom of the cases that came his way.
In this first of the series Carr’s hero, Dr Gideon Fell, takes an almost secondary role to the young American romantic lead; of course the real mystery is why this well-educated though naive chap falls so totally for a young lady descended from a family sinisterly bonkers for the last six generations.
Hardcoverpages. I’ve le many of his books long ago and always appreciated catr ‘locked room’ resolutions. Oh, the story had it’s moments, and Carr does have a knack for delivering some shivery, creepy visuals.

This is the first Dr. Two distant cousins meet face to face for the first time on a train bound to Scotland. In fact, the character that I liked the most in this novel was that of Mrs.
Books by John Dickson Carr. May 18, Kate rated it liked it Shelves: This shifted the narrative away from the first-person viewpoint of Tad Rampole to that of the butler. The solving of the case is ingenious — I must admit to being surprised at the end. Loads of fun, even if the science is nonsense. The fact that Angus had several life insurances that dicison not be honoured if he committed suicide makes things more complicated, specifically when we know that the door of his bedroom was locked from the inside.
And I utterly agree — this was my third Carr and probably the one that got me hooked. Fell a Rampole family friend. The emphasis is more on the mystery than on the characters, which is OK, as the mystery is quite a strange and puzzling one.
That jombre be a bit frustrating, as Rampole is so utterly infatuated with Dorothy Starberth that he mostly mopes around and does car to help David or solve the mystery of David’s death. View all 3 comments.
One scene left me tempted to leave the lights on, LOL! Ya llevo varios libros de J. If I could give it more than 5 stars it would be It reminded my of an old s movie where everyone burbles on and on inanely about grand things.
The rumor started that “all the Starberth heirs die of a broken neck” I hope to read more of her. Those details allow him to see murder where everyone else sees the fulfillment of the family curse, and to solve the mystery pages before the author lets the rest of us in on the secret. Fell is an engaging character, middle-aged, gruff and with a fondness for a good drink. As part of the exercise to finish all book I have bought through the years before buying any new books, I finished reading this mystery which I bought years ago as a used book in Toronto.
This has some of that quality in its villa This is JDC at his creepiest – the atmosphere of the scene when they go into the ruined prison had me looking over my shoulder and switching lights on. I have read hundreds and hundreds of books, high claimed authors, and hacks. I honestly believe this would make for a superb movie or TV show, because the setting, century-old mystery of the Starberths, and crime are just so creepy.
Anthony kept his prisoners johj a state of near-starvation, and routinely tortured them. Not sure why – maybe the expressions from when this book was written to this day ar John Dickson Carr and I go way back.
We don’t learn too much about cagr Herbert except that he is a bit of a dullard. JD Carr definitely got much better over time. The reader gets to know the American lad quite well; while Fell is described and drives much of the action of the story, he is less fully fleshed-out.
