In this special Halloween edition of Pulp in the Wild, we feature John Dickson Carr, aka John Dickson, Carter Dickson, and J.D. Carr.
The Corpse in the Waxworks is one of his less-celebrated novels with his less-celebrated sleuth Henri Bencolin. While lacking Dr. Fell or Sir Henry Merrivale, it does feature a tactical killing, plenty of Grand Guignol-like scenes of green lights, eerie wax tableaus of murder, and depraved bacchanalia. The title in the picture is slightly blurred by the action of the subject, because the only thing Hamburglar does faster than flee is speedread.
