The Face on the Cutting-Room Floor Something Very Special (Again!) In The Way of Detective Stories First novel by Cameron McCabe (Ernst Julius Bornemann). Published in 1937, it's a fascinating story of murder and intrigue, with the killer dying half-way through, and his narrative picked up by the policeman who'd been trailing him. Unique. And worth it just for the fake quotes by leading literary figures of the day. Full description

Review:

The Face on the Cutting-Room Floor is a weird, funny, perverse exercise in literary messing-about. It's a murder mystery that pulls the rug from under the reader, then pulls the floor from under the rug, then questions whether the floor was even there. It's a great, and baffling, experience, and the less you know about it beforehand, the better. (Mark Watson)

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

Book Description:

An extraordinary post-modern detective novel from an author who remained a mystery for decades, now relaunched as a Picador Classic.
