The cozy college town of Corinth, New England is the setting for this classic locked-room mystery by Carolyn Wells, author of The Clue.
All entrances to the study where the body was found were locked from the inside. The future college president and groom-to-be had no known cause for suicide, yet no clues point to a murder. Was Anita, the eponymous Mystery Girl, who is rumored to have been romantically involved with the dead man, somehow implicated in his death? Love letters between the two of them point to her potential guilt. And yet she seems incapable of such a crime. It's up to Detective Fleming Stone to decipher the story's twin puzzles; the mystery of the locked-room death and the true nature of ... The Mystery Girl.

The Mystery Girl: A Fleming Stone Mystery by Carolyn Wells Fabulous mystery read - great stuff!
Carolyn Wells, author of The Clue, sets The Mystery Girl in Corinth, New England, and this begins a locked-room mystery you'll not soon forget. A study locked from within holds a body. The deceased had no reason to commit suicide, yet no clues suggest murder. Wells' Mystery Girl might have been a lover of the dead man. Love letters between her and the dead man weren't much to go on. Detective Fleming Stone must solve a two-fold mystery: the locked-room death, and the deeper conundrum: Who is the Mystery Girl, really?
My god this was excellent. This is the type of mystery I want to read. The only problem is that now that it's done I know whatever I read next won't be able to compare.
