Reviews
"From the very beginning women writers have been of fundamental importance to the mystery genre, and these highly entertaining works by one of the founding 'mothers' of the American mystery novel demonstrate why. Times may have changed since these books were first published, but good reading never goes out of fashion."--Dean James, coauthor of By a Woman's Hand: A Guide to Mystery Fiction by Women and manager of Murder by the Book (Houston, Texas)
"Move over, Miss Marple! The original spinster sleuth is back, confronting ghostly coaches, nosing into family skullduggery, and tripping over occasional corpses. Three cheers for Amelia Butterworth and her creator Anna Katharine Green."--Elizabeth Foxwell, mystery writer and contributing editor, Mystery Scene magazine
