A PLACE TOO QUIET, Megan Miranda’s new novel, is a brilliant locked room mystery, in the best tradition of Agatha Christie. It was born in the 19th century, with Edgar Allan Poe (“The Murders in the Rue Morgue”, the first detective novel), but gained prominence in the golden age of detective fiction, with “Murder on the Orient Express”. ” by Agatha Christie, “The Empty House” by Arthur Conan Doyle and “The Hollow Needle” by Maurice Leblanc. All of these novels starred characters who became icons of the genre and were immortalized in film and TV adaptations. The genre of the “locked room” novel has endured and evolved over time, becoming an international success with series such as “Only Murders in the Building” (Steve Martin, Meryl Streep, Selena Gomez) Megan Miranda has written a brilliant mystery in this tradition, in a current context: in “A Too Quiet Place” the events occur in a closed neighborhood in the suburbs, and technology is key to solving the crime.
