Book Excerpt: 
. . .As the man who spoke these words had thereby proved himself a blockhead, I edged away from him as soon as possible toward a very decent looking fellow who appeared to have more brains than speech.

"Do you know who pasted that date upon the post?" I inquired.

He answered very directly.

"No, or I should have been laying for him long before this. Why, it is not only there you can see it. I found it pinned to the carriage cushions one day just as I was going to drive Mrs. Ocumpaugh out." (Evidently I had struck upon the coachman.) "And not only that. One of the girls up at the house—one as I knows pretty well—tells me—I don't care who hears it now—that it was written across a card which was left at the door for Mrs. Ocumpaugh, and all in the same handwriting, which is not a common one, as you can see.

This is a good mystery which will keep you guessing all the way to the end, which is where the book went from a 4 star to a 3 star for me. If you like resolution to your stories this isn't for you. The mystery itself gets resolved, but there's a significant amount that isn't.

I like Anna Katherine Green's books. This one was a good mystery solved by one man who saw something that happened wrongly and doggedly followed through on it. Good writing and understandable even though classic mystery.

Sad tale, excellent reading by Dawn Larson.

This was an extremely satisfying mystery with twist after twist and suspense too! At first, it was slow, but it soon picked up and I was quite happy with the progress of the story. There was a slight theme of Christianity which was really good! A delightful mystery with fascinating characters!

This early 1900's mystery, is written from the point of view of a detective who reads about the large reward for the return of six year old heiress Gwendolen Ocumpaugh, who disappeared from a bungalow on the grounds of her home on the Hudson River. The father is in Europe and the mother is distra...more
