A woman goes into her bedroom with a revolver, locks it from the inside, leaves the key in the lock so nobody can unlock it from the outside -- and is discovered half-strangled and clubbed on the head. How did the murderer get in? How did they get out? And who was it? The answer may surprise you - it sure surprised us!

This is an entirely new translation of this French classic. It's often called the ultimate locked-room mystery. The Mystery of the Yellow Room is the book that inspired Agatha Christie to write mysteries. You can see the resemblance in the very Poirot-ish egotistical genius of its hero, Joseph Rouletabille. (Even if he is French, not Belgian!)

Gaston LeRoux wrote a whole series of Rouletabille mysteries, most of which have never been translated into English. They inspired others as well, including the Tintin adventures. And he also wrote a little novel you might have heard of called The Phantom of the Opera.
