The Secret of the Night



From The Adventures of Rouletabille; other titles being: Le mystère de la chambre jaune - The Mystery of the Yellow Room (1907); Le parfum de la dame en noir - The Perfume of the Lady in Black (1908); and Rouletabille chez le Tsar - Rouletabille and the Tsar; The Secret of the Night (1914).

Though not one of Leroux's best works, 'The Secret Of The Night,' is a stunning novel. In the book Leroux focuses upon a journalist in Russia partly resembling Inspector DuPin (Poe) and Sherlock Holmes (Conan Doyle).
