I am a fan of Mary Roberts Rhinehart, and this is one of her best! Her mature lady characters are always the most appealing for me, possibly because I am a mature lady. She adds some romance into her mystery stories, but not enough to cloud the plot. It was a singular glimpse into the times, with all of the details nonchalantly written to enrich the characters and setting. I read it in an afternoon. It was easy to read, and the final plot twist is a little thin, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
