He Who Whispers

(1946)
(Book 16 in the Dr. Gideon Fell series)
A novel by

 
 
At the edge of the woods by the river stands the tower. Once part of a chateau since burnt down, only the tower remains. The inside is but a shell with a stone staircase climbing spirally up the wall to a flat stone roof with a parapet.

One that parapet the body of Howard Brooke lay bleeding. The murderer, when Brooke's back was turned, must have drawn the sword-cane from it sheath and run him through the body. And this must have occurred between ten minutes to four and five minutes past four, when the two children discovered him dying.

Yet the evidence showed conclusively that during this time not a living soul came near him.

Genre: Mystery    

"Very few detective stories baffle me nowadays, but Mr. Carr's always do." - Agatha Christie
