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.

    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".

    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?
