Death in Five Boxes

Carr, John Dickson -- Death in Five Boxes (1938)


I think Death in 5 Boxes is excellent - I liked all those crypto-criminals.  It's almost like a textbook for budding arsonists and cat burglars.  This was the first time I'd come across the method, so I thought it was brilliant.  The murderer also really surprised me, and I kicked myself for forgetting about dragons.  In fact, I think it's a lot better than The Judas Window, which has a really clever twist halfway through, but an arbitrary murderer and a boring method.
