    1. Una sufficienza piena, senza infamia e senza lode. Comincio a pensare che, dopo “Le tre bare”, “L’arte di uccidere”, “Il terrore che mormora”, “La tabacchiera dell’imperatore” e “Delitti da mille e una notte”, il meglio del meglio di Carr ormai l’ho scoperto. Questo “Un colpo di fucile”, l’ho trovato molto simile ad altri già letti, apprezzabile per la genialità del mistero della camera chiusa in questione (per quanto un po' troppo complesso) e per l’acume del [...]


    2. Till Death Do Us Part by John Dickson Carr.This is a Dr. Fell locked room mystery from the golden age of mysteries.Every thought process of the characters especially Dick Markham is detailed adding to the suspense of the mystery. That may be one of the qualities in J.D.C. writing that sets him apart and above (in my opinion) from the rest of the crowd of mystery writers.Dick Markham of Ashe Hall has just formally announced his engagement to Lesley Grant much to the chagrin of his former lady fri [...]


    3. I've got a very late 50s edition of John Dickson Carr's Till Death Do Us Part. If you go by the blurb on the back--listed--(and the cover picture above--see her pouring the poison), you'd think that Lesley Grant was the ultimate femme fatale--causing the deaths of husband and lovers right and left. See:Here's how the story really shakes out:Dick Markham, a playwright who specializes in "psychological thrillers" and who lives in Six Ashes, has fallen in love with the lovely young Lesley Grant. Le [...]


    4. One of the masterpieces of Carr.John Dickson Carr here invents a novel by spectacular plot: Dick Markham, is engaged to the beautiful Lesley Grant. The two live in Six Ashes, where it is holding a charity bazaar, whose biggest attraction is that of a self-styled magician who claims to read a crystal ball. Few people know that the magician is actually Sir Harvey Gilman, chief pathologist at the Ministry of the Interior. Lesley ignores the identity of the wizard, and when she goes to him, she runs [...]


    5. I've not read other John Dickson Carr mysteries, so I wasn't familiar with his Dr. Fell. It did not take long to realize, though, that Dr. Fell is just as obnoxious as other detectives in mystery series. He is arrogant, and he reminds me very much of Nero Wolf. At least, however, Nero Wolf could cook. Dr. Fell has no such redeeming qualities. He's simply huge, and most annoyingly, always right even when there's no basis for that assumption. How he fits into this particular story is conveniently [...]


    6. Fabulous!.This is the second Gideon Fell book I've read. Before this I read "Three Coffins" was a great mystery but seemed long and plodding at times.but this one----shorter chapters-great!---"hooks" at the end of each chapter--very great!---changing suspects--very very great!!!!! I highly recommend this one---I usually read series in order, but with only a couple of these in my library I've taken them in order of publication---and it doesn't seem to matter. While the friendship/relationship of [...]


    7. Carr's locked room mysteries are second to none - this is a genius concept executed very well indeed. The story, though, is less perfect. I'm already forgetting exactly whodunnit, though *how* is going to stick in my mind for a long time. 12+*Please note: this review is meant as a recommendation only. Please do not use it in any marketing material, online or in print, without asking permission from me first. Thank you!*


    8. A great fun locked room murder mystery. When a fortune teller is apparently accidentally shot by the woman he'd just given a reading to, everyone fears the worst. He then warns of a murderer on the loose who makes killing look like suicide, only to be found dead in a locked room - apparently having killed himself in the same way he said the murderer had used before - murder might be suspected. Except that it appears to be impossible.This is more of a howdunnit than a whodunnit. There is a huge c [...]


    9. Originally published on my blog here in October 1999.Carr's novel has a title that is today primarily reminiscent of Johnny Speight's series about Alf Garnet in the seventies; both of course refer back to the marriage service. The title is not really closely related to the events in the novel; in fact, there are no married couples in the story at all.Till Death Us Do Part is a typical Carr mystery. He wrote many subtle variations on the locked room theme - body found in room locked on the inside [...]


    10. Carr starts you into the mystery in every first chapter and keeps it up. Introductions along the way. And tons of red herrings (what's a mystery without them?) This one went back and forth from she did it to no she didn't to well, maybe she did to etc so many times I forgot who all the players were. Which works for Carr since I couldn't predict the person who finally did do it until (as usual with mysteries) you say, oh yeah, of course that person did it!Another captivating read. He mixes myste [...]


    11. Un classico dottor Gideon Fell, forse anche meno istrionico del solito. Niente male la trama: alla fine tutto si incastra perfettamente, e non c'è praticamente dettaglio che non si riveli funzionale in un modo o nell'altro alla costruzione del mistero. I personaggi sono sempre gli stessi, anche quelli non ricorrenti: non credo ci sia romanzo di Dickson Carr alias Carter Dickson in cui non ci siano almeno una bella fanciulla con qualche segreto e un giovanotto atletico apparentemente ingenuo, tr [...]


    12. Book #15 in the Gideon Fell series, and an excellent locked room mystery filled with so many twists and turns that to say anything at all about the book may give them away. Set in a small Sussex village outside Hastings, which happens to be the location of the excellent BBC WWII mystery series “Foyle’s War” that I’m streaming right now. This book, though published in 1944, is set before the war: the second Fell book in a row to do that. I guess Carr didn’t want to depress readers by se [...]


    13. Kunnes kuolema erottaa ei ole John Dickson Carrin parhaita suljetun huoneen arvoituksia, vaikka kirjan takakansi niin väittää. Lukijan on melkeinpä mahdotonta keksiä etukäteen kikkaa, jota on käytetty tässä arvoituksessa, koska ratkaisuun päästäkseen on tunnettava melko yksityiskohtaisesti 1940-luvun amerikkalaiset asuntotekniikan saavutukset, joskin tarvittavat johtolangat ripotellaan kyllä lukijan eteen ja niiden perusteella on helppo tehdä omia veikkauksia ja päätyä kohtuulli [...]


    14. Even though there is not much by way of characterization and there are enough distractions that seep in through the cracks left by the story having been written predominantly taking into consideration the protagonist's feelings and perceptions, the "sealed" room solution is uniquely gimmicky enough for its time for me to pronounce it a mini-classic. To detract from it a bit, all this leads to an abrupt and bland conclusion.


    15. A fairly clued locked room mystery with lots of interesting twists and turns to keep the plot moving. Unfortunately, though I liked the reveal of who the culprit turned out to be, I found the motive to be a bit out of the left field, and I'm personally not a fan of the solution to the locked room itself.


    16. Another engrossing read from Carr.Full of the usual red herrings and suspects,this is well worth a read.Carr's locked room solutions sometimes can be a little contrived,but the one used here is very plausible.As the book reached it's climax i found it hard to put down.Recommended!


    17. This is a very clever locked room mystery. The psychological elements were very sound. There was a strong red herring that would take in even experienced fans. It plays fair.


    18. A suitably twisting and turning plot set in a small country town. Not terribly gripping, but an enjoyable little read. Noteable for having the most amusing author bio on the 1953 Penguin I read.




    19. I was a little spoiled for I read the script for, IIRC, Vampire Tower. I wish I read the novel first, but it was still a good read.
