Overview

From the first decade of our century into the 1950's, she was the Mary Higgins Clark of her day, a mystery writer of enormous popularity. Now B-O-T has re-recorded one of the classic novels that made Mary Roberts Rinehart a household name. Lawrence Blakely, attorney-at-law, sets off by train to deliver valuable documents in a criminal case. His ride will be eventful. Along the way he'll encounter romance, treachery, a train wreck, even a murder in which he'll be implicated. Who's after Blakely and his papers -- why? The first detective novel to appear on national bestseller lists, THE MAN IN LOWER TEN is still a great read almost ninety years after its publication. It has all the thrills of a contemporary whodunit and a satiric edge that gently mocks the conventions of male detective fiction.

    Quite the adventure!

    Rinehart was a mistress of suspense and clever plot twists. The fact that it is a bit dated doesn't detract from its charm, and the love interest is sweet.

    Charming old-fashioned mystery

    A story of murder, blackmail, mistaken identity, and two friends competing for the love of the same girl. One of the minor characters is a delightful send-up of the "amateur detective" archetype we all know and love. Plenty of typos and scanning errors, but really, what do you expect from a free book?

    Great mystery

    Though it was a bit confusing at times, it kept me intrigued and guessing at what really happened. A very entertaining and engaging mystery, with a bit of humor, too.

    She keeps you interested and always has plot twists. I have read her mysteries several times each. I did not enjoy her "romance books".
