Dr. Gideon Fell - 4 ). John Dickson Carr. The bunk’s mattress was soaked wit blood. Introduction by Anthony Boucher. This book is a farce about murder. I feel I should give you fair warning, because this sort of thing hasn't been common lately.

Dr. The old-fashioned razor was folded shut. But it had been recently used. It was smeared with blood. But if your instant reaction is shocked withdrawal, please pause a moment and hear me out.

An inheritance hangs in the balance in a case of stolen identities, imposters, and murderBanished from the idyllic English countryside he once called home and en route to live with his cousin in America, Sir John Farnleigh, black sheep of the wealthy Farnleigh clan, nearly perished in the sinking of the Titanic. SUMMARY: When Dr Gideon Fell, that most eminent of eccentric sleuths, finds himself at a party whose guests are in a state of deep agitation, all the faculties of his detective genius are called into play. Why is the host of the party - Henry Maynard, a Southern aristocrat - so cryptic about the strange goings-on in the stately mansion?

John Dickson Carr (November 30, 1906 – February 27, 1977) was an American author of detective stories, who also published using the pseudonyms Carter Dickson, Carr Dickson and Roger Fairbairn. Carr is generally regarded as one of the greatest writers of so-called "Golden Age" mysteries; complex, plot-driven stories in which the puzzle is paramount. He was influenced in this regard by the works of Gaston Leroux and by the Father Brown stories of G. K. Chesterton.

Sunk! he said wildly. Come on, take our vote if we want to, but we can’t do either one thing or the other now. I’m getting sick of this. What’s the matter with the old soak?

Sunk! he said wildly. I’m getting sick of this e a kleptomaniac?. You let him alone! cried Peggy. He can’t help it. He’s drunk, poor darling. Oh, why didn’t I think? He’s done it before. Only mostly it’s only motor-car keys, and there’s not an awful lot of harm done, in spite of what awful people sa. What do you mean, motor-car keys?. Her eyes wrinkled up. Why, the keys of the cars, you know; things you turn.

It's the 1930's, the time of ocean liners, telegraphs and an impending Second World War. In this time frame, John Dickson Carr sets one of his best. Stories of this period always have huge cursed gems: the Emerald Elephant is merely extremely valuable, not cursed. And it IS stolen... by one of the heroes. A young diplomat has in his possession a film that could trigger WWII... because it shows some DC big shots (drunk) saying exactly what they think about some of their European compatriots... and it, too, has been stolen. And our heroes are incompetents, to be most polite.

I will not attempt to describe the insanity that occurs aboard this ocean liner.. Bluntly, the Marx Brothers and the Three Stooges would look on in envy. And throughout, Carr plays absolutely fair with you, providing all clues necessary to identify the murderer, even to the point of providing page references to them

If you are looking for a truly funny book about murder, pick this up.
It is my idea of an off-off-off Broadway play which would have bombed in 1926 or so. I love the title, but at 44% into the book, I don't have a clue what the title has to do with what I've read so far and I don't care enough to find out. It leaves me with the feeling that I have been watching an old B&W scratch lined movie, sadly after talkies came into vogue. The word "Gad" is actually used, If you like a weak imitation of slapstick comedy, this is your ticket..
If the Marx brothers were combined with Sherlock Holmes, they would be this book. A well-planned mystery interwoven with slap-stick comedy. One of my favorite mystery novels of all time. I highly recommend this book for any who enjoys British mystery novels and has a sense of humor. I urge you to read this book. It's well worth your time.
One of John Dickson Carr's funnier mysteries (he does write comedy well) with an interesting though not terribly difficult puzzle. If you can stop reading long enough, you have a chance at figuring out the solution.
His plots are involved and at times are funny. Makes for good summer reading or for a rainy day. I'm really glad Carr is available on Kindle unlimited.
Anything by John Dickson Carr is great. I love how he comes to the conclusion of the mystery.
I don't enjoy this style at all myself, but have to admit this one is well written of its kind.
A good read.
