1907. An American detective-story writer, Green's many thrillers were characterized by logical construction and a knowledge of criminal law.

I needed a position, needed it badly, while the others-But her eyes are on our faces, she is scanning us all with that close and calculating gaze which lets nothing escape. She has passed me by-my heart does down, down-when suddenly her look returns and she singles me out. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.

Review: The Mayor's Wife

User Review  - Plaimont - Goodreads

Up until the last few chapters I was prepared to give this book four stars. Unfortunately, I didn't care much for the plot resolution, myself. It is a good read nonetheless. Additionally, AKG's influence on Agatha Christie's style is quite apparent, which I found to be a special treat! Read full review

User Review  - Amy Beck - Goodreads

Woman assigned to care for mayors wife. Two odd old ladies next door. House haunted. Turns out mayors wife had married their nephew when she was sixteen and run away. Too unrealistic. Read full review
