The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux
Burial Deferred by Jonathan Ross "Mad, bad, and bloody-minded" is how Detective Superintendent George Rogers describes himself to his second-in-command when he wakes up in a hospital bed with a throbbing head and no memory of the events of the previous evening. He is soon up and about again, his inquiries leading him to a baroque Victorian house atop a steep cliff overlooking the sea. There he meets Phaedra Haggar, a serene but passionate blind woman, and her paying guests. The discovery of a shallow but empty grave, the recovery of a girl's body from the sea, and the disappearance of a male guest from the house begin a hunt for a murderer--a search that involves Rogers in an emotional entanglement that threatens to upset his professional investigation.
