The Mystery of the Yellow Room


by Gaston Leroux

The Mystery of the Yellow Room is one of the first locked room mystery novels and the first novel to feature detective Joseph Rouletabille. It concerns a complex and seemingly impossible crime in which the criminal appears to disappear from a locked room. Leroux provides the reader with detailed, precise diagrams and floorplans illustrating the scene of the crime. The emphasis of the story is firmly on the intellectual challenge to the reader. It was admired by Agatha Christie and one of John Dickson Carr’s characters calls this  “the best detective tale ever written.”
