10 reasons I'm fascinated with John Dickson Carr

Known as the Father of Locked Room Mysteries

    1. It's intriguing

    I didn't realize there were so many different ways to kill people in locked rooms

    2. The stories are fun reads

    Keeps you guessing as to who did it, and how they did it

    3. You can find them at used bookstores

    4. The language is easy to understand

    5. Mystery novels in general are great ways to get into flow

    6. The books can be worth quite a bit (e.g., first editions)

    7. It's fun to look for the novels at book sales

    8. The characters John wrote (Patrick Butler, Gideon Fell) have their own idiosyncracies

    9. Sometimes the mysteries are ones you can solve

    So you can play along

    10. Love the look and feel of these 'old' books

    Makes me feel like I have something precious
