Overview

The Man in Lower Ten (serialized in magazines in 1906) was published as a novel in 1910, and immediately rose to number four on the best-seller list. Combining murder, mystery, and romance, Rinehart’s celebrated novel is sure to keep readers in delightful suspense.

 

In order to pick up legal papers in another city, a young lawyer, Lawrence Blakely, must travel from Pittsburgh to Baltimore on what he expects to be an uneventful train ride. However the trip quickly becomes anything but boring; Blakely’s papers are stolen, and his car bunk "lower ten” is occupied by a dead body. But that’s not all Blakely finds himself in the middle of. He also grapples with a deadly train wreck, a ghostly haunting, and a sexy yet possibly dangerous love interest.

"In John Ermine of the Yellowstone, Remington has presented a great tale of a man caught between two cultures, never able to fully be a member of either."—Larry S. Sterett, Gun Week

Dime Novel Round-Up

"This edition of his 1902 novel, John Ermine of the Yellowstone, demonstrates that it is no dime novel, but an epic Western to stand with Owen Wister's The Virginian. . . . With excellent notes and a sound bibliography of further reading as well as the reproduction of Remington's original illustrations, this reissue is a welcome rescue of this novel from neglect."—Dime Novel Round-Up
