First Carter Dickson book I read, back in fifth grade or so, maybe sixth, and it was a pip! However re-reading it I'm like, duh, it isn't that good after all. Well, what's good about it?

Seeing is Believing book. I liked the book, and Ferrars is often described as a modern day Agatha Christie. In this book a retired couple are living in a small village in England. Although they think they know most of their neighbors, when one is killed they find out that they really don't know any of them that well.

First Carter Dickson book I read, back in fifth grade or so, maybe sixth, and it was a pip! However re-reading it I'm like, duh, it isn't that good after all.

Well, what's good about it? As usual, the spooky, creepy atmosphere Carter Dickson (pen name for John Dickson Carr) could evoke at the drop of a hat. He can build it up so that you fairly scream at the end of a chapter, and a lot of the writing in SEEING IS BELIEVING is very effective. This is the book in which a stage hypnotist elects to entertain a house party with his celebrated vaudeville act, persuading suggestible Vicky Fane to try to kill her husband, who stands by like an idiot, with her choice of revolver or dagger. Dr Rich, the hypnotist (a sympathetic portrayal of a figure often written as a charlatan in the Golden Age literature) has substituted a rubber dagger that couldn't hurt a fly for the real thing, and yet when Vicky thrusts the dagger into her husband's heart it is discovered that someone invisible has switched the daggers yet again, and Arthur Fane lies dead on the floor in a circle of lamplight.

Afterwards, to shut her up, the killer tries to give poor Vicky a severe case of lockjaw (tetanus) with the pin that her girlfriend has poked into her as a test to see if she was really "out" during the hypnosis or was she just faking.

I have to say that, when the revelations finally came at the end of the book, Carter Dickson cheated like crazy. Could Dr. Rich's celebrated stage act be timed within seconds as Sir Henry Merrivale asserts? It had to be, otherwise the killer couldn't have proceeded with Plan A, but it's extremely unbelievable. And the killer had forty seconds to make everything work. Ridiculous. Plus, we find out that (a la Hitchcock's STAGE FRIGHT) the narration contains two basic lies, one in each of the first two paragraphs, and that is definitely not fair play.

Finally, the heroine, Vicky's girlfriend Ann Browning, is one of Carr's most unappealing and nasty female characters. Usually his women characters are feisty, and bawdy, often in a way Jay-Z would approve of. Here, Ann is a drip who for some reason keeps unaccountably silent when a man tries to molest her. She's severely neurotic, and Phil Courtney, the hero, deserves better. I'm talking as if these were real people which I suppose is some kind of tribute to their creator. Remember Martha Vickers in THE BIG SLEEP? That's what she's like. Blonde poison!

Carter Dickson, also known as John Dickson Carr wrote the best mysteries especially of locked rooms and totally unexplainable mysteries.

His books (all of them I might add) are books you simply cannot put

down once you begin a read. This book was published first in 1941.

In my estimation mysteries that were written in the 1800's and early to

mid 1900's were far, far superior to any mysteries written today and

I think that also includes other fiction and non fiction.

Fantastic! I love the older 1930's-40's English detective stories, Sir Henry Merrivale is one of my favorites. The books was in great shape, priced right, and will be kept for re-reading.
