Further Information
Carter Dickson, a pseudonym of John Dickson Carr, wrote 25 novels one of which was jointly written with John Rhode. His main series character was Sir Henry Merrivale, nicknamed Mycroft but usually referred to as HM. As under his own name most of the mysteries are of the impossible crime or locked room genre although there is often a stronger comic element compared to the titles under JD Carr. Titles of particular merit include The Magic Lantern Murders, The Judas Window and The Department of Queer Complaints amongst others.
