MYSTERY OF THE YELLOW ROOM


MYSTERY OF THE YELLOW ROOM

GASTON LEROUX    Book Number: 86100    Product format: Hardback

Best remembered today as the author of The Phantom of the Opera, The Mystery of the Yellow Room has been praised for more than a century as the defining book in the 'impossible crime' or locked room genre. It is as readable now as when it first appeared in French in 1907. Breaking down her door in response to the sounds of a violent attack and a gun shot, Mademoiselle Stangerson's rescuers are appalled to find her dying on the floor, clubbed down by a large mutton bone. But in a room with a barred window and locked door, how could her assailant have entered and escaped undetected? While bewildered police officials from the Sûreté begin an exhaustive investigation, so too does a young newspaperman, Joseph Rouletabille, who will encounter more impossibilities before this case can be closed. 239pp in the collectable Detective Club hardback series.
