    1. 4.5 stars.It is one of the best detective mystery thrillers that I have read in recent times and I am glad that I have started reading John Dickson Carr/Carter Dickson's works sooner than later. At the outset the case seemed implausible or tending towards supernatural. The whole atmosphere of tension is built up gradually and culminates in a great climax. The denouement in the end when Sir Henry Mellvile not only tells the who but also the how of it, made me chuckle as there was no way I could h [...]

    2. Another top notch mystery from Dickson Carr.Not a locked room as such this time,rather the method of murder is the mystery.Can the mind reader Pennik really kill people with just the power of thought?Ingenious as always,i particularly liked the narrator's reading notes,where you,the reader is warned and given hints and tips,thus giving the novel it's title.This is a real page turner,highly recommended.

    3. At a gathering of friends and new acquaintances, the hosts have invited a self-proclaimed mind-reader. Not only does the man correctly read the guests' minds, but also claims to know that one of the hosts will be dead before dinner. The host, Mr. Constable, actually does topple down the stairs dead, but absolutely no cause of death can be found.Not only is this novel classic Carr, but it's also exceptionally creepy. I actually think that there hasn't been a Dickson Carr this hair-raising since t [...]

    4. Another of Carr's mysteries with a strong gothic touch, this one involving a psychic. Again, Carr is not PC as far as attitudes of women, people of color, and the "lower classes." If you can manage to overlook that, these gothic mysteries are well suited to light reading on a stormy night.

    5. A great read, a very British period crime thriller. I read it in one day as I couldn't put it down. Would make a great film, possibly has?

    6. Enjoyable but corny to a fault as murder(s)-as-explainable-possibilities take precedence over plot and characterization.

    7. What can i say about this masterpiece.No matter how many mystery books i read, It will be one of the best.No words.Very Highly Recommended.
