Overview

The Street stretched away north and south in two lines of ancient houses that seemed to meet in the distance. The man found it infinitely inviting. It had the well-worn look of an old coat, shabby but comfortable. The thought of coming there to live pleased him. Surely here would be peace- long evenings in which to read, quiet nights in which to sleep and forget. It was an impression of home, really, that it gave. The man did not know that, or care particularly. He had been wandering about a long time- not in years, for he was less than thirty. But it seemed a very long time.
At the little house no one had seemed to think about references. He could have given one or two, of a sort. He had gone to considerable trouble to get them; and now, not to have them asked for-
There was a house across and a little way down the Street, with a card in the window that said: "Meals, twenty-five cents." Evidently the midday meal was over; men who looked like clerks and small shopkeepers were hurrying away. [...]

    Very well done

    Masterfully-spun tale about the world of human experience -- romance, mystery, service, selfishness, shame, redemption, and the rest -- to be found in one small neighborhood. Rinehart is an expert at slow-burning suspense, and even though you feel sure things must all come out right in the end, enough goes badly wrong to make you doubt it, after all. Some scanned errors, but plenty readable.

    On another note, what is with the creeps and weirdos who use the review system for personal messages and game-playing? Do you think there's a chance B&N might someday delete that stuff, so that those of us who are actually interested in reading books don't have to wade through all of the idiocy to find an authentic review? So, so annoying...

    Great Characters

    I believe this book was scanned as there are many many characters and numbers thrown about. This doesn't hinder the readability of the book.
    I liked the book a lot. I enjoyed it as a period piece that I could reflect upon the beginning of the 1900's with the beginnings of autos, mention of "the canal," road houses, ... it was nice to learn more of the times.
    I enjoyed the characters greatly and felt like one of the neighborhood.
    I did not realize that this was suppossed to be a mystery. I though most things were fairly evident. I though this was a very nice novel.
    As I said, I really enjoyed the book, the time period, the characters, the descriptive view of life at the time, and many of the thoughtful analysis of various subjects matters.
    I hope others enjoy it as much as I.
