    One thought on “Death Before Bedtime”

    1. Would you like to know something I don't care about? No? Well I'll tell you anyway. I didn't care, nor care now that I'm done with the book, who killed the Senator in this book. I just didn't find myself giving a shit who was the murderer. That's not the attitude I should have had reading this book but it's true, I just didn't care. The whole mystery, who-dunnit, part of the novel bored me. Not caring it was difficult to want to keep reading. This is an Agatha Christie style murder mystery, with [...]

    2. Death Before Bedtime (1953) is the second of three mystery novels written by Gore Vidal under the name of Edgar Box. After his novel The City and the Pillar (1948) which featured descriptions of homosexuality that caused him to be blacklisted by The New York Times, Vidal donned the Box pseudonym and used it to produce the three novels for cold, hard cash. His series stars Peter Cutler Sargeant III, a publicity man turned amateur detective when his business lands him in the middle of three murder [...]

    3. DEATH BEFORE BEDTIME. (1953). Edgar Box (pseud. of Gore Vidal). ****.This was the second mystery written by Gore Vidal using the pen name Edgar Box. It again features Peter Sergeant, our intrepid P.R. man, as the protagonist. In this adventure, Sergeant has been engaged by Senator Rhodes to develop and execute a public relations plan that ultimately help him win the nomination for President. Sergeant finds himself on a train from Boston to Washington, D.C where he runs into Ellen Rhodes, the Sen [...]

    4. The second of Gore Vidal's pseudonymous "Edgar Box" mysteries from the 1950s, this one's set in Washington DC and concerns the murder of a senator who happens to be the father of a high-living young woman the narrator, Peter Sargent, was briefly engaged to. Sargent (the narrator of DEATH IN THE FIFTH POSITION) is a public relations man, and the senator was his newest client - for one day.One can only wonder what critics and readers in the 1950s thought of the novels political and social observat [...]

    5. By God, Gore Vidal hated women! That aside, this Agatha Christie-like short work shows him at his best--writing about the Washington he knew from his Grandfather Senator Gore and step-father Hugh Auchincloss. Vidal "wrote what he knew", and he knew it well. But one of the things he believed he knew even then was that women were evil; temptresses; villains.

    6. This is the second of the three Edgar Box mystery novels, and it was published in 1953. It follows the same basic plot structure of the first novel, with a lot of different characters presented as possibilities for who committed the murder—which in this case happened to an elderly Senator in DC who hails from a family steeped in money and generations of political power. Since Edgar Box is a pseudonym for Gore Vidal, and Gore Vidal actually had such a powerful, elderly senator for a grandfather [...]

    7. Actually, Gore Visal wrote Death Before Bedtime - and 2 other mysteries under the pseudonym Edgar Box. Lots of fun, biting wit and yet a mystery of its genre. The main character is a NY public relations man who comes to Washington DC to represent a Senator of the lowest degree. Warning for those of you with the lust for innumerable deaths, this one gracefully has only two. In its defense (and my preference) it was written decades ago, when a high death count was not as required as today.

    8. The Edgar Box trilogy is a fun read. The detective novels were written by the great Gore Vidal under an alias due to being blackballed by a homophobic book critic. Reading about the womanizing Peter Sargent with that fact in mind, adds an extra level of enjoyment to Gore's books.

    9. great fun. perfect bedtime reading. love the back story as to why vidal wrote under the pseudonym. scary,too, is how prescient some of vidal's observ. are today.

    10. This was fun because of the lovely anachronisms and the same as usual dastardly politicians getting skewered.

    11. I'm glad Gore (Vidal) moved on from his Box days, but this murder mystery was still entertaining, and prefigures TV's "Scandal" in many ways.

    12. Second of Edgar Box (Gore Vidal) mysteriesme format of catty reporter breaking the case of murder. Easy fun read with lots of quips.

    13. Always interesting when a literary novelist tries his hand at Murder. A "house mystery" reminiscent of Ten little Indians but Mr. Box mercifully stops it at two and a half.
