The Case of the Constant Suicides (Dr. Gideon Fell #13) by John Dickson Carr

I have read and reviewed two other books by this author recently (looks like I am on a bit of a binge!)   Although our library's online catalogue is not as vast as I would want it to be when it comes to old authors (they are pretty up to date on current trends), I… Continue reading The Case of the Constant Suicides (Dr. Gideon Fell #13) by John Dickson Carr
