- #17872 in Mystery & Suspense
These three Classic French novels include The Mystery of the Yellow Room, The Phantom of the Opera, and The Secret of the Night. According to Wikipedia, "Gaston Louis Alfred Leroux (May 6, 1868  April 15, 1927) 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. 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 the United States."
