13 to the Gallows
Never before published! Four plays written during the early 1940s, two by John Dickson Carr alone and two in collaboration with the BBC's Val Gielgud.
  • Inspector Silence Takes the Air is set during World War II at emergency BBC studios in a provincial town. There, a murder takes place - and the weapon disappears.
  • In Thirteen to the Gallows, also set in a BBC studio, a woman falls to her death from a tower - it is murder, but no one is near her, and the only clue is a scattering of Arum Lilies.
  • Intruding Shadow is filled with mysteries within mysteries, as Carr expertly shifts the audience's expectations from one suspect to another.
  • She Slept Lightly features the ghostly appearances of a young woman during the Napoleonic Wars.
The book concludes with an alternate ending for one of the plays, cast lists, and contemporary reviews of the original productions.
