AN ANCESTRAL MANSION, LOST FAMILY WILLS, A GHOST, A GUN, A LOCKED ROOM--AND MURDER. WHAT MORE DOES THE PERFECT DETECTIVE NOVEL NEED?
DR. GIDEON FELL.
The House at Satan's Elbow is all about an eccentric English family, the shade of an eighteenth-century hanging judge, and a disputed heir. It's Carr at his best--a novel that's got the critics crying hallelujah at the return of the good old days of the detective classic.
