Anna Katharine Green (November 11, 1846 - April 11, 1935) was an American poet and novelist. She was one of the first writers of detective fiction in America and distinguished herself by writing well plotted, legally accurate stories. She is credited with shaping detective fiction into its classic form, and developing the series detective. Her main character was detective Ebenezer Gryce of the New York Metropolitan Police Force, but in three novels he is assisted by the nosy society spinster Amelia Butterworth, the prototype for Miss Marple, Miss Silver and other creations. She also invented the 'girl detective': in the character of Violet Strange, a debutante with a secret life as a sleuth.

Nothing personal
Another interesting mystery by this author; but to me it was not as interesting as her first novel ("The Leavenworth Case"). It is a little less about mystery and more about characters; but, that can be interesting to some, too. I just prefer a little more mystery. As with most Victorian era novels, I find when there is lot of dialogue (near the end), it becomes rather overly "dramatic" to our more modern ears which is why I believe some people may have found it hokey. If you read it carefully, however, you may find some interesting insight into this era's attitudes and thoughts about men, women, family ties, motives, NYC society, and other matters (at least through the author's eyes). I just wonder-would NYC police really have acted this way with respect to the criminals? (I will not go into detail-you'll have to read to the end.)
A problem I had with the Kindle version was that every time there was a note or something similar and the book said something like "and written on it was: " there was nothing there, no indication of what was written (I think there are about four times this occurred). I assume it has something to do with the "translation" from the book form. It does not, perhaps, change the reader's understanding but is very annoying. There were the usual very minor typos.
The reason for MY three rather than four stars then is a combination of it not being as much a "mystery" as her first novel and the evident problems with it being translated into an electronic Kindle version.

These are well-written early examples of the detective novel. The plot is a bit far-fetched, but the characters enjoyable and I love the late nineteenth century New York setting.

Not hard to guess what's going to happen, but a fun red to get there. Recommended for people who love books from a bygone era. Getting there is all the fun.

This is a review of the free Kindle version.

If a woman disappeared from your house, you would probably care. Mr. Blake, doesn't, so he comes under some appropriate suspicion. As time passes, the story is revealed and it involves a marriage, attempted murder and kidnapping.

A fun read - worth the download. Pay attention to the painting!

I can see why this mystery is the predecessor to Christie, Rinehart, and other great authors. It had great plot, good characterization, and easy to read. Very enjoyable.

The kindle version of this book has annoying lapses in the text, most notably in what might be italicized. A typical case might be "the letter read:" and the text of the letter is missing! Some of the missing can be guessed at, but some instances cause a major loss of context.
