9780140080858: The Face on the Cutting Room Floor (Classic Crime)

1930s King's Cross, London. When aspiring film actress Estella Lamare is found dead on the cutting-room floor of a London film studio, Cameron McCabe finds himself at the center of a police investigation. There are multiple suspects, multiple confessors and, as more people around him die, McCabe begins to perform his own amateur sleuth-work, followed doggedly by the mysterious Inspector Smith. But then, abruptly, McCabe's account ends. Who is Cameron McCabe? Is he victim? Murderer? Novelist? Joker? And if not McCabe, who is the author of The Face on the Cutting-Room Floor?

About the Author:

Though The Face on the Cutting-Room Floor was first published in 1937, the true identity of its author remained a mystery until 1974 when it was discovered that the well-known German sexologist, jazz musician and critic Ernest Borneman was "Cameron McCabe." Borneman died in 1995. Jonathan Coe is the author of The Rotters' Club and Number 11.

Review:

"A dazzling . . . unrepeatable box of tricks . . . The detective story to end all detective stories." —Julian Symons
