    Well, he stumped me again. I suspected just about everybody but the one who did it.This one is kind of a reverse of the "locked room" for the master of the locked room. Here, his victims disappeared off a cliff. There is a roaring sea below. Was it suicide or murder?You'd expect their bodies to be bruised and battered. Well, yes, they were, but they were also shot. Did they shoot themselves? What did they do with the gun, if they did?This is really bugging Dr. Luke who was picked as a witness. L [...]

    Classic and highly enjoyable Carr mystery, where the mechanics of the crime are intricate and quite impossible to guess at, with an easily distinguishable cast of characters. Recommended!

    Intriguing potboiling puzzler that springs its solutions to the impossible crimes committed slightly out of left-field. Unfortunately, I wasn't quite convinced that the characters Dickson portrays could be quite as ingenious or clever as Dickson himself in coming up with his impossible crime scenario. Still, I did enjoy the setting (1940, as the tide of war is turning against Britain) and there are some wonderful chapter endings that beg the reader to turn the page, such as:"Look here, " he said [...]

    An interesting little mystery set in the early days of WWII Britain as people were just getting used to blackouts and bombings. An apparent double suicide is proclaimed to be a double murder. A worthy number of red herrings and reasonable suspects. It's always the one you don't suspect.The electric wheelchair was a hoot and Sir Henry Merrivale is quite the detective. He reminds me a lot of Crispen's Gideon Fell.

    I enjoyed this.Though one of Carr's later works,where the quality started to decline I thought this up there with some of his very best.No locked rooms this time,instead mysterious footprints leading out to Lovers Leap.Some very humorous passages with Merrivale confined to a motorised wheelchair and great finale.The clues are there but yet again I guessed wrong.One day day! Recommended.

    One of the best masterpieces by Carr.It's the darkest among his novels, with a great Locked Room variation, and an atmosphere very dark and sad. The psychological analysis of the characters, is very strong.

    A clever whodunnitdidn't guess the ending. A bit potboilerish though.
