A classic read from Mary Roberts Rinehart about a flood, a murder, and even a little romance. And I love the old-time cover, illustrations, and mapback.

I enjoyed this little mystery. Plot twists were good. Will read more by this author.

Not readable in many places. Didn't bother to try and finish. Will delete from my library.

Nice, short, interesting story of a disappearance that might be a murder--- or perhaps it's a frame-up? Lots of twists to keep you engaged, with a touch of romance to help balance the suspense.

A really good, old fashioned book. The flood setting and the way people take it in stride are more interesting than the cas ofJennie Brice. (You'll almost figure it out, but it will still surprise you.) But it's still the flood and the different time that make it worth reading. No complaining about government not doing anything to stop the flooding, just move upstairs and get on with life!
