About the Author

Paul Halter was born in Hagenau, Alsace, in 1956. He pursued technical studies in his youth before joining the French Marines in the hope of seeing the world. Disappointed with the lack of travel, he left the military and, for a while, sold life insurance while augmenting his income playing the guitar in the local dance orchestra. Upon discovering the writings of John Dickson Carr, he gave up the guitar for the pen.

He has since written over 30 novels, almost all 'locked room,' including 'The Lord of Misrule,' 'The Fourth Door' - which won the coveted Prix du Roman Policier in 1987, 'The Seven Wonders of Crime' and 'The Demon of Dartmoor',all available in English on Amazon and Kindle. In 2006 his collection of short stories 'The Night of the Wolf' appeared, to critical acclaim.

If you read mysteries to match wits with a brilliant criminal, this is for you-the killer here appears, so to speak, to be invisible, pushing people to their deaths in front of eyewitnesses, without being visible. How can the brilliant Halter devise a satisfying solution for these impossibilities? Somehow, he does. Very atmospheric, very clever, and easily one of the top 10 impossible crime/locked room novels of all time-if this is your first Halter, you'll want more. Translator Pugmire has done mystery-lovers everywhere a huge favor by bringing this to an English-speaking audience.
