First published in 1950, Night of the Jabberwock is one of the most brilliant and bizarre murder mysteries ever -- with a denouement so ingenious it WILL leave you gasping.

A strange tale, bolstered by arcane references to Alice In Wonderland, which at the core is a whodunit as experienced through an alcoholic haze by the narrator. That was my only problem with this entertaining book -- Doc is obsessed with liquor, and even if it's 1950, driving under the influence wasn't something to be proud of. The whole story is sort of preposterous, but that's what makes it so much fun. It reminded me a bit of Naked Came The Sasquatch by John Boston, except Jabberwock doesn't really involve the supernatural world.
