Inventor Theo Duval appeared to be having the perfect life. A locked room with the only key in the decedent's pocket, a book on hypnotism, and one very rich and very dead inventor, present Inspector Gilles Maintenon of the Surete with a problem.

Another grood book in the series. Likeable main character. While I really enjoy the Inspector Maintenon series, the author tends to switch between first and last names of all the many characters and it can get a bit confusing. While that works for the main characters that you really get to know, it doesn't work as well for those that are only mentioned here and there throughout the story. So, when the murderer was finally revealed, I had to go back and find out just who he was. Overall a good series and well edited with only a few minor issues.

An excellently written book. Interesting characters good story line, two well defined plots and it moves, no major dragging to the story. I would most certainly read more of his novels. I won't tell you about the story line, just read it and let yourself bbecome one with Gilles!
