Overview

A beautiful girl seeks the help of an attorney when her father vanishes. Before long, her aunt also disappears-- from a locked house in the dead of the night. The search leads to the White Cat, an infamous establishment frequented by crooked politicians. And then--murder.

THE WINDOW AT THE WHITE CAT is another in the famous "Had-I-But-Known School" of mysteries founded by Mary Roberts Rinehart with the publication in 1908 of her first work, THE CIRCULAR STAIRCASE. The focus of these stories is the Gothic heroine--always in the wrong place at the wrong time trusting the wrong people.

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".

Good story but way too many distractions due to bad digitizing! Free of cost, but those are minutes of my life I WISH I hadn't wasted on this poor excuse for an eBook!

A very well written novel. Suspence, romance and murder, all rolled into one delightful story. Evidently the person who wrote one of the earlier reviews had not read a few of the other free novels that I had read, Zane Grey, Brun and a gew others . Compared to them this one looked and read like it was almost professionally typed. They wete almost absolutely unreadable!

Good classic story, short and sweet. The digital edition is difficult to read and many errors make you work at it to get the story. Still it is worthwhile.

Lots of drama, suspense, romance, and humor. Would have given it five stars if it weren't for the old-fashioned casual racism. Aside from that, though, a really enjoyable read.
