Due to the enthusiasm for Carr displayed by those who have discovered him through my praise on this Board, I thought I should re-read the author after so many years.

THE MAD HATTER MYSTERY displays his genius at plotting, and you can see Carr in your mind's eye wandering around the Tower of London to sketch the murder at Traitors' Gate.

Now, thanks to the Internet, you can also follow along with photos of the Tower, which, of course, hasn't changed since he wrote HATTER in the 1930s.

But best of all, I discovered that I haven't read one of Carr best books, according to fans on the Web. It's out of print, and not in the libraries, but yesterday, a good friend who I turned on to Carr years ago knocked on my door said, "Is this what you're looking for?"

The first victim lay bloodless, the mark of the vampire's teeth in his neck. The second one slowly bled to death on top of a tower, where no living being could have come near him. Then, a woman was frightened to death by something she never saw, something she only heard, whispering malign words of evil...

It sounds like these books are really quite good. Too bad I probably won't ever be able to read any of them. They all seem to be out of print, and unable to be ordered through a book store. And I've never seen any of them show up used anywhere.

Not even the library has any of them.

:?

I don't purchase things online, so amazon and Barnes and Noble aren't really much help.

I couldn't afford to pay you much for them if you did have doubles raasnio.

But thanks guys!

My only real hope is if they turn up used here somewhere.

Mbwun,

Start with THE THREE COFFINS (THE HOLLOW MAN). Have your local library bring it in on loan from the Vancouver Public Library:
