Mystery of the Yellow Room

by Gaston Leroux

I have read the story two years ago. I remember it being interesting and intriguing in most of its parts. However, I wasn't greatly convinced with the to be villain disclosed at the end. There were fallacies that weakened the reasoning, which were notable especially that the story was really challenging in most of its parts. Also, the story was pretty lengthly for the conviction provided at the end.

The Daffodil Mystery

by Edgar Wallace

A complicated plot that proves to simplicity.. The story is enjoyable, though lengthy at parts. It could be a delightful time-spender.

The Innocence of Father Brown

by G.K. Chesterton

A completely different line of detection. It is even different from things written today. Ideas and plots are bizarre, but convincing at many instances. Many stories are really original, and the writer has a clear distinguished talent.
