Riassunto: A DR GIDEON FELL MYSTERY. In the quaint English village of Sodbury Cross, pretty Marjorie Wills is suspected of poisoning chocolates in the local confectionary shop. Her uncle, the wealthy Marcus Chesney, believes eyewitnesses are unreliable. To prove his point, he sets up a clever test in front of three witnesses and a camera. They are asked to watch a staged series of events, during which a masked man enters the room to 'poison' Chesney by feeding him a large green capsule. As expected, the experiment concludes and no one can agree on what took place, except that Marcus Chesney is dead . . . How is that possible? And who is the culprit? It takes Dr. Gideon Fell to unravel this Golden Age classic.
L'autore: Born in 1906, John Dickson Carr was an American author of Golden Age 'British-style' detective stories. He published his first novel, It Walks by Night, in 1930 while studying in Paris to become a barrister. Shortly thereafter he settled in his wife's native England where he wrote prolifically, averaging four novels per year until the end of WWII. Well-known as a master of the locked-room mystery, Carr created eccentric sleuths to solve apparently impossible crimes. His two most popular series detectives were Dr. Fell, who debuted in Hag's Nook in 1933, and barrister Sir Henry Merrivale (published under the pseudonym of Carter Dickson) who first appeared in The Plague Court Murders (1934) Eventually, Carr left England and moved to South Carolina where he continued to write, publishing several more novels and contributing a regular column to Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine. In his lifetime, Carr received the Mystery Writers of America's highest honor, the Grand Master Award, and was one of only two Americans ever admitted into the prestigious - but almost exclusively British - Detection Club. He died in 1977.
