Till Death Do Us Part Kindle Edition
That night the enigmatic fortune teller – and chief accuser – is found dead in an impossible locked-room setup, casting suspicion onto Grant and striking doubt into the heart of her lover. Lured by the scent of the impossible case, Dr Gideon Fell arrives from London to examine the perplexing evidence and match wits with a meticulous killer at large.
First published in 1944, Till Death Do Us Part remains a pacey and deeply satisfying impossible crime story, championed by Carr connoisseurs as one of the very best examples of his mystery writing talents.

Admittedly, a lot of the first part is a a very clever piece of deception. However, the motives for the murders are slight, the locked room solution a bit obvious and there are a couple of fairly clearly-planted clues about the perpetrator. In addition, Fell is quite inept and effectively causes the second murder.While I realise the importance to the plot of Markham's love for Lesley, the romance element is overdone.
The writiting is average, with too many "cliffhanger" endings to chapters, and the characterisation, at best,is sketchy. The village setting also is perfunctorily done, coming over as a rather generic " Mayhem Parva".
Readers new to the novel should not start by reading the Introduction which, apart from being a little disjointed, summarises too much of the plot for my liking.
This certainly does not rank among my great reads of this year.
denouement this is a fast paced and entertaining mystery story. Highly recommended.
