John Dickson Carr – The Crooked Hinge

Murders and witchcraft

A rich English squire who miraculously survived the sinking of the Titanic – and is haunted by weird nightmares – is accused to be a fraud by a man who claims to be the victim of a false identification.
A detective is investigating a case of a woman who died by strangulation a year earlier.
Is there a link between these two cases?

An extraordinary impossible crime with a double solution, shifty players and an unforgettable killer.
Carr pushes his writing to the limit of its genre, creating one of his most memorable novels.
The ending is anything but moralistic and Carr even dares to let the readers themselves to be in charge to decide on which side they are on.
