A madcap tale of murder on an ocean liner that offers “good mystery and lots of fun in the bargain” (The New York Times). The majestic ocean liner Queen Victoria is halfway through another uneventful transatlantic crossing when bad weather drives most of the passengers to their cabins. Only six have the iron stomachs necessary to take a seat at the captain’s table. Of those six, one will die—and the rest will make utter fools of themselves. The theft of a reel of top-secret government film sets off a chase involving stolen jewels, massive marionettes, and a corpse that won’t stay put. Murder has been committed, but the passengers can’t be sure who’s dead—and are too busy boozing, fighting, and robbing one another to be bothered. They do embark on an inadvisable attempt at amateur detective work—but every clue they turn up drives them deeper into madness. It will take the timely intervention of Dr. Gideon Fell to cut through the insanity and unmask a killer. John Dickson Carr wrote some of the most brilliant mystery novels of the golden age of detective fiction, and this book shows him at his funniest. As Anthony Boucher warned, “Never was a reader more bedeviled with distractions from detection. Who observes clues while he’s wiping his laughter-streaming eyes?” The Blind Barber is the 4th book in the Dr. Gideon Fell Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

Three Golden Age British-style whodunits from the Edgar Award–winning writer Agatha Christie called “a master magician . . . the king of the art of misdirection.” One of the most popular Golden Age mystery authors, John Dickson Carr was also lauded by his peers. Agatha Christie offered him the highest praise from one mystery writer to another: “Very few detective stories baffle me, but Mr. Carr’s always do.” And Dorothy Sayers enthused: “Mr. Carr can lead us away from the small, artificial world of the ordinary detective plot into the menace of outer darkness. . . . Every sentence gives a thrill of positive pleasure.” Featured in Carr’s widely acknowledged masterpiece, The Hollow Man, Dr. Gideon Fell is a portly sleuth whose formidable intellect is the terror of every criminal in London and the envy of every detective in Scotland Yard. The Blind Barber: Aboard the majestic ocean liner Queen Victoria, the theft of a reel of top-secret government film sets off a chase involving stolen jewels, massive marionettes, and a corpse that won’t stay put. It will take the timely intervention of Dr. Fell to cut through the shipboard shenanigans and unmask a killer. “A good mystery and lots of fun in the bargain.” —The New York Times Death-Watch: A clockmaker is puzzled by the theft of the hands from a monumental new timepiece he is preparing for a member of the nobility. When one of the stolen hands is found buried between a policeman’s shoulder blades, stopping his clock for all time, Dr. Fell comes to the aid of Scotland Yard, putting him squarely in the path of a madman with nothing but time on his hands. “There has probably never been, either in real life or in fiction, a more elaborately planned crime than this one.” —The New York Times To Wake the Dead: On a wager, mystery novelist Christopher Kent travels from Johannesburg to London with only the cash in his wallet and the clothes on his back. He arrives with twenty-four hours to spare, his wallet and stomach both empty. But while having breakfast at a luxurious hotel, he is implicated in the murder of a guest. Fleeing the scene, Kent takes refuge with Dr. Fell. For Kent, getting to London was easy. The trick will be avoiding the hangman. “An excellent novel of crime and puzzlement.” —The New York Times

Die Wahl von Barack Obama im November 2008 markierte einen historischen Wendepunkt in den USA: Der erste schwarze Präsident schien für eine postrassistische Gesellschaft und den Triumph der Bürgerrechtsbewegung zu stehen. Doch die Realität in den USA ist eine andere. Obwohl die Rassentrennung, die in den sogenannten Jim-Crow-Gesetzen festgeschrieben war, im Zuge der Bürgerrechtsbewegung abgeschafft wurde, sitzt heute ein unfassbar hoher Anteil der schwarzen Bevölkerung im Gefängnis oder ist lebenslang als kriminell gebrandmarkt. Ein Status, der die Leute zu Bürgern zweiter Klasse macht, indem er sie ihrer grundsätzlichsten Rechte beraubt – ganz ähnlich den explizit rassistischen Diskriminierungen der Jim-Crow-Ära. In ihrem Buch, das in Amerika eine breite Debatte ausgelöst hat, argumentiert Michelle Alexander, dass die USA ihr rassistisches System nach der Bürgerrechtsbewegung nicht abgeschafft, sondern lediglich umgestaltet haben. Da unter dem perfiden Deckmantel des »War on Drugs« überproportional junge männliche Schwarze und ihre Communities kriminalisiert werden, funktioniert das drakonische Strafjustizsystem der USA heute wie das System rassistischer Kontrolle von gestern: ein neues Jim Crow.
