The Dark Tower (1933)

By Alexander Woollcott and George S. Kaufman

In a rare collaboration with his Algonquin Round Table comrade, Alexander Woollcott, Kaufman wrote his only murder mystery. Woollcott, who was obsessed with murder and mayhem, instigated this drawing-room mystery, about a devious killer whose penchant for disguise allows him to commit what seems to be the perfect crime; a well-crafted thriller that anticipates Sleuth.
