Midnight

Octavus Roy Cohen

Book Overview: 

The crime seemed to have lost itself in the sleety cold of the December midnight upon which it was committed. The trails were not blind–there were simply no trails. The circumstances baffled explanation–a lone woman entering an empty taxicab; a run to a distant point in the city; the discovery of the woman’s disappearance, and in her stead the sight of the dead body of a prominent society man–that, and the further blind information that the suit-case which the woman had carried was the property of the man whose body was huddled horribly in the taxicab.

Recommended for fans of John Grisham, James Patterson, Janet Evanovich, Scott Turow and David Baldacci.

"No?"

"Yes, indeed! You're such a wonderful man—having your name in the papers all the time. Oh, I've read about everything you've done! That's how I learned so much about detectiving—or isn't that what you call it?"

"Detecting?"

"That's it. You know I always was simply incorrigible in making up words when I couldn't think of the right one. Don't you think it's a lot of trouble sometimes—thinking of just the right word in the right place?"

"Sometimes. But about the Warren case?"

"Oh, yes, certainly! I'm always getting off my subject, ain't I? I mean—am I not? Bother grammar, anyway. It's a terrible bore, don't you think?"

"Yes, Miss Rogers. And now—"

"Back to that awful crime again, aren't you? It's simply sugary the way you great detectives . . . Read More

Published in 1922, this book does show its age here and there, but it is still an enjoyable read. The plot is a little thin once one reads to the end, and I was able to guess a crucial plot point (though not the entire solution) well in advance of everyone else in the story.

This is not the best David Carroll book. To anyone who read it (or read the book's plot) it was obvious how the body got in the car! Near the end I started to skip entire paragraphs of their musings on the crime/criminal. Yet, still a pleasure to read a 1922 edition of this 1921 book.
