About the Author

Mary Roberts Rinehart (1876-1958), born in Pittsburgh, was a novelist and playwright best known for her mystery stories, which combined humor with ingenuity. The success of her novels The Circular Staircase and The Man in Lower Ten established her reputation as an important American mystery writer; at one time she was the highest paid writer in America. In addition to mysteries, she wrote comic tales, plays, romances, and travel books, some of which reflected her experiences as a correspondent during World War I. One critic called her autobiography, My Story, her finest book.

An accomplished master of mystery, Carolyn Hart is the author of forty-seven novels of mystery and suspense. Her books have won multiple Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity awards. One of the founders of Sisters in Crime, Hart lives in Oklahoma City, where she enjoys mysteries, walking in the park, and cats. She and her husband Phil enjoy the company of an orange tabby and brother and sister brown tabbies.

Reviews

[Rinehart's] literary distinction lies in the combination of love, humor and murder that she wove into her tales. . . . She helped the mystery story grow up.
Fans of Agatha Christie will be pleased with this welcome reissue.
