Meet the Author

She was born in Allegheny City, Pennsylvania, now a part of Pittsburgh. Her father was a frustrated inventor, and throughout her childhood, the family often had financial problems. Left-handed at a time when that was considered inappropriate, she was trained to use her right hand instead.
She attended public schools and graduated at age 16, then enrolled at the Pittsburgh Training School for Nurses at Homeopathic Hospital, where she graduated in 1896. She described the experience as "all the tragedy of the world under one roof." After graduation, she married Stanley Marshall Rinehart (1867–1932), a physician she had met there. They had three sons and one daughter: Stanley Jr., Frederick, Alan, and Elizabeth Glory.

    a classic

    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.

    Engaging mystery story

    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 good book on a long night.

    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!
