    1. I am a fan of John Dickson Carr s books I have read all his books and was looking for someone who could write similar to him I have found Paul Halter, a worthy successor to John Dickson Carr.Paul Halter s books are in French However, his books are now being translated into English at regular intervals by John Pugmire Till date 7 novels including this one have been translated.The translations are so good that a reader will never feel that these are translations.The present book is definitely a pa [...]

    2. SLJ review HALTER, Paul Crimson Fog 184p Locked Room International 2013 Tr 19.99 ISBN 9781491244234.Adult High School Halter s deftly written, fast paced novel, first published in French in 1988, uses two very different mystery subgenres to challenge readers preconceived notions of each He begins with what appears to be a straightforward, Christie ian locked room mystery Narrator Sidney Miles he openly admits that the name is not his real one has returned to his hometown of Blackfield, England, [...]

    3. In the late 1880s a mysterious stranger comes to an English village to solve an impossible murder that took place a decade earlier Most of the people involved are still around, and it seems overwhelmingly likely one of them is the killer And, sure enough, as the stranger investigates alongside the local squire the dead man s brother there are further brutal murders .The first two thirds or so of this novel are taken up with the solution of a classic locked room mystery that would have made John [...]

    4. I m so pleased that French author Paul Halter s books are being translated into English A modern author writing clever locked room mysteries reminiscent of Golden Age writers like John Dickson Carr, Halter tries an ambitious plot in The Crimon Fog and he pulls it off As other readers have noted, the first 2 3 of the book reads like a classic locked room puzzle mystery, which is neatly solved The last 1 3 takes an unexpected, experimental turn I wasn t sure if it would work, but I found myself qu [...]

    5. Mlai 1887 L homme qui descend du train Blackfield se fait appeler Sidney Miles Il se dit journaliste au Daily Telegraph Il vient enqu ter dans ce petit village anglais sur une affaire criminelle vieille de neuf ans et jamais r solue le meurtre impossible commis dans une pi ce close de Richard Morstan, le ch telain du village.Mais Sidney Miles est il vraiment ce qu il pr tend tre Pourquoi veut il tout prix d couvrir la v rit Celle ci n est pas toujours bonne d voiler Elle peut d cha ner les passi [...]

    6. An interesting read,that ultimately left me a little disappointed.As others have reviewed the first 2 3 of the book are an extremley enjoyable classic style locked room mystery.Then unfortunately Paul Halter takes the story into a whole new direction,stretching implausibility to the limit,and within this genre that s really saying something.It is something of a page turner though,even cramming Sherlock Holmes and Jack The Ripper into the mix

    7. Three and a half stars, really a sort of mixture of the locked room mystery with the giallo if Robert Bloch or Fredric Brown ever collaborated with John Dickson Carr, it could very well have resembled this A vast improvement over his short fiction, which I found to be dry and workmanlike albeit clever impossible crime stories.

    8. Paul Halter , the master of locked room mysteries, Writes a must read book which almost anything I say might be a spoiler.
