The Corpse in The Waxworks

The Corpse in the Waxworks (Henri Bencolin, #4)The Corpse in the Waxworks by John Dickson Carr

My rating: 2 of 5 stars


Best opening ever: "Bencolin was not wearing his evening clothes, and so they knew that nobody was in danger. For there is a legend about this man-hunting dandy, the head of the Paris police, which is known and believed in all the night haunts from Montmarte to the Boulevard de la Chapelle." Ha. Too bad the rest of the book wasn't quite in suit with those opening lines.
