Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was completely enthralled with this book. When it comes to murdery mysteries, I lean towards Agatha Christie's books and the adventures of Hercule Poirot, or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes. However, Mary Roberts Rinehart has earned her place among those authors. The characters were well-rounded and I even found myself getting annoyed at them! Overall, this was a very enjoyable story with an unexpected ending.
