The Clue of the Twisted Candle
The Urbane T. X. is back in this locked-room mystery by British master storyteller Edgar Wallace. The renown mystery writer John Lexman is charged with murder and sent to prison. His friend T. X. Meredith, employed by Scotland Yard, tries to prove his innocence.
A satisfying read
Well constructed writing is always a joy in itself. Stir in an obliging storyline, believable, rational characters, and a lens on a previous era, the result is "a good read"
