Further Information
John Dickson Carr was, an remains, one of the most important authors in the genre. A prolific output but consistently high standards, excellent characters and superb plotting. He is regarded as the leading exponent of the Locked Room mystery when the detective is given a seemingly impossible crime to solve. His two great series detectives were Dr Gideon Fell, a former teacher and Sir Henry Merrivale, usually referred to as HM, who was a former Military Intelligence Officer. John Dickson Carr wrote under several pseudonyms, all listed to the left, generally speaking US editions tend to precede the UK books and there are several alternate titles.
