If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware,
Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam,
A body of England's, breathing English air,
Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home

He Who Whispers. A Dr. Fell Mystery Story - John Dickson Carr

1946 - Harper & Brothers Publishers, New York - First Edition
A fine first edition of this ‘locked room’ murder mystery featuring the large pince-nez wearing, pipe smoking Dr Gideon Fell, who applies the full weight of his knowledge and education (B.A. and Ph.D. from Harvard, M.A. from Oxford, and law degree from Edinburgh) to the challenge presented...

‘The master of the ‘Locked Room’ murder mystery, prolific American author John Dickson Carr (1906-77), who also wrote under the names ‘Carter Dickson’, ‘Carr Dickson’, and ‘Roger Fairbairn’, was a highly regarded member of the ‘Golden Age’ sect, his complex, plot-driven stories concentrated on the puzzle of the story rather than the fast-paced tough-guy violence purveyed by his contemporary pulp hacks. Carr modelled his major detective - overweight lexicographer Dr Gideon Fell - on G.K. Chesterton. The stories see the eccentric Fell solving ‘impossible’ crimes, where the victim is usually discovered, not only with doors and windows locked from the inside, but with multiple impediments.’ [BMC]
