La bête hurlante (Vindry)

  • By Noël Vindry
  • First published: France: Gallimard, 1934; translated into English as The Howling Beast, Locked Room International, 2016

Some readers, I know, loved it; JJ at The Invisible Event and Stefano at Howdunit both praise it.  A great set-up – man on the run tells police magistrate about dark doings at a French chateau – but the ending really didn’t impress me as much as it did others.  Not offensive, by any means, just rather underwhelming.
