John Dickson Carr (November 30, 1906 – February 27, 1977) was an American author of detective stories, who also published using the pseudonyms Carter Dickson, Carr Dickson and Roger Fairbairn.

John Dickson Carr (November 30, 1906 – February 27, 1977) was an American author of detective stories, who also published using the pseudonyms Carter Dickson, Carr Dickson and Roger Fairbairn. Carr is generally regarded as one of the greatest writers of so-called "Golden Age" mysteries; complex, plot-driven stories in which the puzzle is paramount. He was influenced in this regard by the works of Gaston Leroux and by the Father Brown stories of G. K. Chesterton.

The House at Satan's Elbow, first published in 1965, is a detective story by John Dickson Carr featuring his series detective Gideon Fell. This novel is a mystery of the type known as a locked room mystery. It was dedicated to his fellow mystery writer Clayton Rawson "because of our mutual interest in tricks and impossibilities". Garret Anderson, a historian, has enjoyed an unexpected financial windfall when one of his historical biographies is turned into a smash-hit musical.

The more John Dickson Carr I read, the more I see that his books are hit-or-miss. The plot of The House at Satan's Elbow involves Nick I like mysteries, so John Dickson Carr has long been on my radar. The House at Satan's Elbow had some nice elements and I'm glad to have spent two evenings with the book, but it's not one of his best.

I absolutely love all of the books by John Dickson Carr - this one is amazingly complex and beautifully written, with Dr. Fell and Elliot at work, there is no question that the reader has all of the clues and, if lucky, can solve the mystery. The clean-up of the mystery is epic, as it is in all of Carr's books. The character development is outstanding! I've read them all and wish he were still writing!

An inheritance hangs in the balance in a case of stolen identities, imposters, and murderBanished from the idyllic English countryside he once called home and en route to live with his cousin in America, Sir John Farnleigh, black sheep of the wealthy Farnleigh clan, nearly perished in the sinking of the Titanic. SUMMARY: When Dr Gideon Fell, that most eminent of eccentric sleuths, finds himself at a party whose guests are in a state of deep agitation, all the faculties of his detective genius are called into play. Why is the host of the party - Henry Maynard, a Southern aristocrat - so cryptic about the strange goings-on in the stately mansion?
