This was a really nicely written mystery involving an old family ritual handed down for generations I loved the writing style which was freuently humorous but also at times downright chilling One scene left me tempted to leave the lights on LOL The descriptions of people and places were also really well done I loved the writing style The emphasis is on the mystery than on the characters which is OK as the mystery is uite a strange and puzzling one However all the clues are there for readers to follow and although I didn t figure everything out I enjoyed trying to do so

Hag s Nook Hag s Nook by John Carr 50 out of 5 stars come closer dear readera mystery awaits September 7 2013 This review is from Hag s Nook Hag s Nook the introduction to Dr Gideon Fell master of the locked room mysteriesJohn Dickson Carr AKA Carter is an author any reader or writer of mysteries should be respectfully aware of Carr s books on Dr Gideon Fell were written during the golden age of mysteries 1930 s 60 s and have stood the test of timeThis masterfully written story centers on a legend or a curse against the Starberth family of Chatterham and their ghastly involvement in the hangings at that prison It all started back in 1797 when Anthony Starberth was Governor of Chatterham Prison followed by his descendent Martin Starberth in 1821 They instituted these merciless hangings without remorse which according to legend brought a curse on the Starberth family However the legend actually begins with the untimely death of Timothy Starberth in a most unsettling mannerThis book is so exuisitely detailed that you can walk along the road from Dr Fell s home to the prison and almost envision the dampness on the way from the rain that fell the previous night I read a few chapters at a time and rested but not from revisiting the story in my mind and the elouence of Carr s writingDr Gideon Fell seems a most unlikely of sleuths but then we come to understand his steadfastness in allowing nothing to go unnoticedI highly recommend this marvelous story and this author If I could give it than 5 stars it would be 10
