The Yellow Room Conspiracy Author:Peter Dickinson Four decades ago, when a wild-spirited, handsome young man died in a locked room at the renowned Vereker mansion, both Lucy Vereker and her lover, Paul, had a reason to kill him. Forty years later, as Lucy and Paul recount the circumstances of the young man's death, they discover the solution to the murder.
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.
