Read full description of the books El misterio del cuarto amarillo / El perfume de la Dama de Negro:

«¿Cómo logra este enorme, victorhugesco escritor francés, perteneciente a esa clase de amantes de la buena mesa y la buena vida, prolongar sus relatos de misterio sin que el interés decaiga? El misterio del cuarto amarillo desafía nuestra lógica una y otra vez, guiándonos por caminos falsos y conduciendo al más avezado de los lectores hacia metas que se revelan como espejismos, hasta que al fin el gran Leroux alza el telón y la verdad, hasta entonces enmascarada –como en su famosa novela El fantasma de la ópera–, nos permite contemplar su terrible rostro. Y El perfume de la Dama de Negro, donde de nuevo aparece el detective Rouletabille, es otro buen ejemplo de esa persecución lógica que nos obliga a emprender Leroux. No en vano, grandes cultivadores de la novela policíaca posterior, como Agatha Christie o John Dickson Carr, han experimentado auténtica devoción por el autor del Cuarto amarillo, y viendo los viejos retratos del escritor francés uno se pregunta hasta qué punto ese otro grande y aventurero detective belga no fue heredero, no sólo lógico (la propia Agatha lo confesó así) sino “biológico” de las creaciones y la apariencia física del propio Leroux».

Del prólogo de José Carlos Somoza

Read information about the author

Ebook El misterio del cuarto amarillo / El perfume de la Dama de Negro read Online! Gaston Louis Alfred Leroux was a French journalist and author of detective fiction.

In the English-speaking world, he is best known for writing the novel The Phantom of the Opera (Le Fantôme de l'Opéra, 1910), which has been made into several film and stage productions of the same name, such as the 1925 film starring Lon Chaney, and Andrew Lloyd Webber's 1986 musical. It was also the basis of the 1990 novel Phantom by Susan Kay.

Leroux went to school in Normandy and studied law in Paris, graduating in 1889. He inherited millions of francs and lived wildly until he nearly reached bankruptcy. Then in 1890, he began working as a court reporter and theater critic for L'Écho de Paris. His most important journalism came when he began working as an international correspondent for the Paris newspaper Le Matin. In 1905 he was present at and covered the Russian Revolution. Another case he was present at involved the investigation and deep coverage of an opera house in Paris, later to become a ballet house. The basement consisted of a cell that held prisoners in the Paris Commune, which were the rulers of Paris through much of the Franco-Prussian war.

He suddenly left journalism in 1907, and began writing fiction. In 1909, he and Arthur Bernède formed their own film company, Société des Cinéromans to simultaneously publish novels and turn them into films. He first wrote a mystery novel entitled Le mystère de la chambre jaune (1908; The Mystery of the Yellow Room), starring the amateur detective Joseph Rouletabille. Leroux's contribution to French detective fiction is considered a parallel to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's in the United Kingdom and Edgar Allan Poe's in America. Leroux died in Nice on April 15, 1927, of a urinary tract infection.
