Meet the Author

Anna Katharine Green (1846-1935) was a pioneering American author of detective fiction. Her legally accurate and intricately-plotted works served to inspire later generations of writers, including Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Agatha Christie, who patterned her 'Miss Marple' character after Green's spinster crimefighter Amelia Butterworth.

The book is truly amazing. The plots of the short stories are both unique and eerie. One note however, one of the stories "The Doctor, His Wife and the Clock" is not a Violet Strange Mystery. I still loved the story. One word of caution, and this edition does not have an active table of contents.
