9780008137281: The Perfect Crime: The Big Bow Mystery (The Detective Club)

The first in a new series of classic detective stories from the vaults of HarperCollins is the world’s first locked-room mystery, a seemingly impossible crime story as powerful as any that have copied the scenario since.

“The Detective Story Club”, launched by Collins in 1929, was a clearing house for the best and most ingenious crime stories of the age, chosen by a select committee of experts. Now, almost 90 years later, these books are the classics of the Golden Age, republished at last with the same popular cover designs that appealed to their original readers.

Originally published as The Big Bow Mystery in 1891, and re-published by the Detective Club to coincide with a new film version called ‘The Perfect Crime’, Israel Zangwill’s novel invented the concept of the ‘locked room mystery’ and influenced almost every crime writer thereafter.

‘A man is murdered for no apparent reason. He has no enemies and there seemed to be no motive for anyone murdering him. No clues remained and the instrument with which the murder was committed could not be traced. The door of the room in which the body was discovered was locked and bolted on the inside, both windows were latched, and there was no trace of any intruder. The greatest detectives in the land were puzzled. Here indeed was the perfect crime, the work of a master mind. Can you solve the problem which baffled Scotland Yard for so long, until at last the missing link in the chain of evidence was revealed?’

This new edition includes a brand new introduction by the Golden Age crime expert, Dr John Curran, author of ‘Agatha Christie’s Secret Notebooks’.

Descripción Collins Crime Club. 1 Cloth(s), 2015. hard. Estado de conservación: New. A man is murdered for no apparent reason; he has no enemies and there seems to be no motive for killing him. No clues remain and the murder weapon cannot be traced. The door of the room in which the body was discovered was locked and bolted on the inside, both windows were latched, and there was no sign of any intruder. The greatest detectives agree only on one thing: here indeed was the perfect crime, the work of a mastermind. Originally published as The Big Bow Mystery in 1891, and republished by the Detective Story Club in 1929 to coincide with a new film version called The Perfect Crime, Israel Zangwill’s novel was the first to expand the concept of the "locked-room mystery" into a full-length book. Accompanied in this edition by the first-ever locked-room story, "The Murders in the Rue Morgue" by Edgar Allan Poe, it is part of the Detective Story Club series, first launched by Wm. Collins Sons in 1929 as a clearinghouse for the best and most ingenious crime stories of the time. Now, almost 90 years later, these books are classics of the Golden Age of mysteries, and HarperCollins is republishing them in handsome black hardbacks with gold foil printing and the same enticing dust jacket designs that appealed to their original readers. 184.
