Locked Room Genre Mystery
 
I'm trying to track down a story wherein the murderer uses a magnet through a wooden door to lock it behind him. I was told Ellery Queen, but I can't find it. Any idea of what stories or authors that use this as a plot device? Thanks!

You can check out anytime you like...but you can never leave!

You could try researching John Dickson Carr, thought to be the master of the locked room mystery.
