Nobody is above suspension… This mildly suspenseful story, published in 1914, didn’t match up to the hype on the cover. A man is wrongfully accused, apprehended, tried, convicted and executed. One could assume that this was a done deal and nothing more could be said. Wrong. The death of a convicted killer has far reaching social consequences for his survivors. These were especially felt in the societies around the turn of the century. When a young girl is shunned and social pressures prevent her ...more

This book was written in 1914 and has to be one of the 1st truly murder/mystery novel. I really enjoyed the story line, the characters and the author's style of writing. Recommend highly.

This book was free on my Kindle, so I thought I'd give it a shot, especially since it got a horrible review from a person who was unable to write a coherent sentence. Another thing that interested me was the fact that Anna Katharine Green created the prototype for Nancy Drew in the form of Violet Strange. This was not a Violet Strange book, however.

I kept thinking I would get to a point where I would be intrigued enough to want to keep reading, but that did not happen even after plowing through

This book had a good story but I feel like we took the long way around to get to the story. An old man is barricaded in his house for years after his friend is murdered. When his servant is killed he has no choice but to hire a woman who is at his door. She turns out to be the wife of the man who was convicted of his friends murder and together they work together to find the true killer. There is a surprise ending to this one if you can read the whole book.
Hum. This was not as interesting as Green's other books. The mystery is bland and there very little detecting. The guilty person instead confesses at the very end of the story and takes about ten pages to do so I might add. This could have been a great examination of the effects of guilt and how crime destroys the lives of everyone involved, but it just was not.

I enjoyed this murder mystery. With it having been written a long time ago, the language and writing style were intriguing. It was more pschological than violent. It was a free Kindle download.

after reading reviews on here and finding this book was so droll I gave up. Too many books, too little time to waste on "fall asleep" stories.

Anna Katharine Green (1846-1935) 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. Born in Brooklyn, New York, her early ambition was to write romantic verse, and she corresponded with Ralph Waldo Emerson. When her poetry failed to gain recognition, she produced her first ...more
