Author Biography: Mary Roberts Rinehart is a well-known mystery and romance writer. Her memorable tales often combine adventure, love, ingenuity, and humor in a style that is distinctly her own. She creates fast-paced, entertaining, and above all, surprising novels. Most of her fiction eventually erupts into the most startling plot twists imaginable. To this Mary adds a strong dose of realism in the depiction of modern life, with many different classes, corruption high and low, and a great diversity of characters. Mary's stories have appeared in the Saturday Evening Post, and she is also a published playwright. The Essential Rinehart Collection brings together for the first time the best works of Mary Roberts Rinehart. This multi-volume series features her most interesting novels of mystery, romance, and adventure.

Even though difficult to read mechanically, this is a well written book that holds your interest. Just as one can only tell whether the juice of grapes is good or bad by squeezing, this book illustrates how adversity brings out the strengths or weaknesses of the characters.

This book may have been a good one but I wouldn't know because I got too frustrated fixing all the errors as I was reading (of which there were MANY) to get into the actual book.
