Synopsis ~ What this Book is About
The story belongs to the Dickson Carr tradition - a supernatural puzzle....

Brief Biography
Helen McCloy, born 1904 and died 1993, was an author, though rooted in the Golden Age, was extremely versatile and adventurous in terms of style and ideas. Her series characters are Basil Willing who is psychiatrist and he appears in some thirteen full-length stories. Her other character is a police chief in the Caribbean, Miguel Urizar, though he only appears in two stories. Overall a highly recommended author and someone of enduring popularity, amongst both collectors and readers alike.
