Although I don't care for other titles by this author, "Yellow Room"
is one of the best plots, best characters, best stories,
best-told mysteries I've found - and I read a LOT of mysteries!

Initially drawn to this book because it supposedly contained a locked-room murder, it really turned out to be nothing like a traditional whodunit.

But it also turned out to be extremely interesting. The author managed to weave the story around his large cast of characters and make it simple to actually remember who they all were. The main body of the book is alternating memoirs of the two main characters, and is an effective way of telling the story.
