Suspense fiction. At the heart of this novel is an enigma. How could a murder take place in a locked room, which shows no sign of being entered? The novel is also about the rivalry to solve the case between a detective, Frederic Larsan, and a young investigative journalist, Joseph Rouletabille. Larsan finds a suspect who is put on trial, only to have him cleared by Rouletabille, who reveals in the most dramatic fashion the identity of the real murderer. In Joseph Rouletabille, Gaston Leroux has created one of the most astute and brilliant detectives in European fiction. Rouletabille earns his living as a newspaper reporter, and he is notable for his ordinariness, making him different from Edgar Allan Poe's Chevalier Dupin and Author Donan Coyle's Sherlock Holmes. But like Dupin and Holmes, he too has his faithful cohort, his admiring friend Sainclair. Although Rouletabille is young, his pronouncements often resemble those of his famous predecessors: "The evidence supplied by the senses only is no proof at all," he remarks.
