Most of Carr's novels have one of the "Big Three" as the detective; Henri Bencolin, Sir Henry Merrivale or Dr. Giddeon Fell. However, he also wrote a number of novels without these detectives and a few of them rank with the best of his work. In addition to the traditional mystery story he also displayed his writing skills in some "non-traditional" mysteries. They include a round-robin novella (No Flowers by Request) with five other mystery writers, a biography of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, a collaboration with Adrian Conan Doyle in writing a collection of new Sherlock Holmes stories, a true crime mystery (The Murder of Sir Edmund Godfrey) whereby Carr solves a real life murder that had went unsolved for over 250 years, as well as an impressive array of historical mysteries, a subgenre of the mystery novel that can arguably be said to have been invented by Carr.
