  • A classic locked-room mystery featuring the portly, bibulous lawyer-sleuth Sir Henry Merrivale, known as "H.M." to his colleagues.

    7.5
    John Dickson Carr - also known as "Carter Dickson" - was a specialist in the locked-room type of mystery story, of which this is a prime example. As no-one could get in or out, how did the victim come to be stabbed through the heart? Look to the title. If you know what a judas window is, you should be able to figure it all out fairly quickly, which doesn't stop the explanation from being preposterously ingenious. David Horne isn't quite right as the red-cheeked H.M., although his lapses into cockney slang ("Take a dekko at this...") are amusing, given his posh accent.moreless
