Meet the Author

Often called the American Agatha Christie, Mary Roberts Rinehart (1876-1958) was a prolific author who wrote hundreds of books, short stories, poems, travelogues, plays, and special articles. Many of her works were best-sellers, but critics were most appreciative of her murder mysteries. Several of her books and plays were adapted for movies. Although she never used the phrase herself, she is considered the source of "The butler did it."

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.
