Overview

When a famous author comes to the closed-up summer resort at Balpate Mountain in the dead of winter, he expects to find peace and quiet in which to write his next book, his literary masterpiece. But before his first night is out, a steady stream of unexpected visitors begins to fill the hotel ... secretive and sometimes dangerous men and women with stories of love, loss, and flight ... and none of them are telling the truth. A fortune is at stake, and they will do anything to possess it. For some it means wealth. For others it means power. And some need it as a point of honor. Before the week is over, there will be gunfire, bribery, fights in the snow, and hidden truths unmasked. Seven Keys to Baldpate is a mystery that will leave you guessing to the end! Earl Derr Biggers penned Seven Keys to Baldpate long before he created his most famous character, Chinese detective Charlie Chan, yet in its day it was a popular best-seller and became the source for no less than seven films.

This is a charming Victorian mystery, that reads like a fast-paced "Clue," without the dead bodies. The inn is closed for the season, but those with keys to one of the seven doors accidentally converge while seeking privacy for various secret deeds. The Inn is based on a real inn south of Estes Park, Colorado, although the story is set in upstate New York. What a lark this was! I especially enjoyed the train stations, philosophy of politics, and authentic 1911 atmosphere.
