Best known for her detective novels, Mary Roberts Rinehart (1876-1958) also wrote a widely popular series of amusing stories about a dauntless spinster and her two cohorts . . . including The Amazing Adventures of Letitia Carberry, Tish, and More Tish.

"Tish is going on a walking tour with a donkey, Lizzie," Aggie had told me -- and here we found Tish at work with a needle.

"What are you making, Miss Letitia?" Aggie asked Tish sweetly. "Summer clothes? With an upholsterer's needle?"

I was quite bewildered about all this. For even if Tish had decided on a walking tour I couldn't imagine what an upholsterer's needle had to do with it -- unless she meant to upholster the donkey.

At that very instant there was a thud under our feet and something came "ping" through the floor not six inches from my toe, and lodged in the ceiling. Aggie and I stood looking up. It had made a small round hole over our heads, and a little cloud of plaster dust hung around it.

"Somebody shot at us!" declared Aggie, clutching my arm. "That was a bullet!"

Meet the Author

Mary Roberts Rinehart (1876 - 1958) was an American writer, often called the American Agatha Christie, although her first mystery novel was published 14 years before Christie's first novel in 1922. Rinehart is considered the source of the phrase "The butler did it" from her novel The Door (1930), although the novel does not use the exact phrase. Rinehart is also considered to have invented the "Had-I-But-Known" school of mystery writing, with the publication of The Circular Staircase (1908). She also created a costumed super-criminal called "the Bat", cited by Bob Kane as one of the inspirations for his "Batman". Best known for her detective novels, Mary Roberts Rinehart also wrote a widely popular series of amusing stories about a dauntless spinster and her two cohorts . . . including The Amazing Adventures of Letitia Carberry, Tish and More Tish.

I love the Tish stories and this author does great work in general. The Man in Lower Ten was the first of her works I read and although written in 1920 her stuff still kicks ass.

Loved the writing style, the characters and the settings. BUT, it was 2 completely separate and unrelated adventures that should have been in 2 different books. The first adventure, in the cave, could have been longer and made into its own book. The stories didn't flow well into each other...it was too random.
