Fredric Brown – Death Has Many Doors

Posted by Dirk under: books .

Fredric Brown was a heckuva writer.  He wrote during the good old days of the pulp magazines and he cranked em out.  He wrote science fiction and mystery and did both well.

This book was one of this mysteries.  Apparently he did other novels with these same characters, but I don’t think I’ve read any of them.  The cover shown here has little to do with the actual book. While there is a killer in the novel, I don’t think he really qualifies as a ‘brutal killer’.

My copy of the book is an old hardcover that I picked up at the local friends of the library used book sale.  It’s missing it’s dustjacket so I had to google up an image to put here.
