The Blind Barber

£4.99

Product description

The Blind Barber, first published in October 1934, is a detective story by John Dickson Carr featuring his series detective Gideon Fell. This novel is a mystery of the type known as a whodunnit.

The bunk’s mattress was soaked wit blood.
The old-fashioned razor was folded shut.
But it had been recently used. It was smeared with blood.

A voice broke the terrible stillness in the stateroom: “The Blind Barber Has Been Here Tonight!”

On an Atlantic crossing of the good ship Queen Victoria, a vicious killer is loose, and four high-living characters are hellbent to pin him down. Dr. Gideon Fell soon finds himself up to his chins in misadventure as he wades into a comedy of terrors that boasts a reel of compromising film, an emerald elephant, and a lethal razor for props, murder as the evils deed, and unmitigated mayhem as the comedy relief.

*Condition: DJ is price clipped with slight crease to back cover but otherwise clean and in good condition. Outside boards have slight staining front and back (See photos for reference) Inside book, pages are clean and unmarked.*
