In his specially written introduction, crime novelist Martin Edwards, President of the DetectionClub and author of the multi-award winning 'The Golden Age of Murder' writes "The reappearance of 'Death in the Dark,' truly a one-of-a-kind detective novel is long overdue and will be widely welcomed."'Death in the Dark' by George Antheil was until now the rarest novel in detective fiction and one of the most complex, with its three impossible crimes committed in one apartment under cover of darkness, but how and why it came into being is even stranger, as described in the extensive Afterword.Antheil, an expatriate avant-garde composer whose works were performed throughout Europe in the 1920s had a disastrous Carnegie Hall concert in 1927 and wrote 'Death in the Dark' out of revenge in 1929. In it he murdered all the people he held responsible. He was helped by Ezra Pound and W.B. Yeats and T.S.Eliot himself wrote "This is a very good detective story."Locked Room International discovers and publishes impossible crime mysteries from all over the world.
