Overview

In this elegant drama, Anna Katharine Green, one of the greatest mystery writers of all time, weaves a narrative with her usual consummate skill, and portrays her characters with exceptional sympathy. On the New England seacoast, not far from Boston, lies a staid, picturesque village called Sutherlandtown. In these tranquil surroundings, Agatha Webb and her servant are found murdered. The task of unraveling the mystery begins at once, and suspicion points to a number of persons. Agatha herself had a tragic and troubled past. She suffered the loss of six of her children who died in infancy; some of the people of the village suspected her of complicity in these deaths, while others looked upon her as a victim. Adding to the complexity of the situation, a wealthy local man is being blackmailed by someone who believes that he is guilty of Agatha's murder. The solution of the puzzle is uncovered in an intensely dramatic court scene. In addition to the attraction of the mystery, there is a great love story.

Written in the 1890s, this story is chock full of twists and turns, secrets and lies, love and honor, and compelling characters acting for good or ill. No one seems to have all the threads of this tangled web in hand, until the cleverness of a talented amateur detective gets a helping hand from Fate. You find yourself rooting for the "good guys" and wishing ill on the "bad 'uns"---even though you can't always tell which is which! All in all, though certainly not the Great American Novel, it's a very fun read.

Good characterization, good plot, interesting twist, but too long.

Agatha webb is a murder mystery\tragedy. It is 212 pages long but the story is only 199 after page 199 it is just lists of other books by the author. There are several love stories and be prepared for a twist at the end! Over all it was a pretty good book and if you like creepy mysteries then this is the book for you. There are a few typos but you will get the jest of it.
