There is always something uncanny about Rhinehart's stories, and I don't mean the mysterious goings-on. It's the presence of a remarkably modern mind behind each story - I am always struck by the feeling that hers are contemporary novels simply 'placed' in the early 20th century. Sort of like what Caleb Carr does, or the many other contemporary writers who enjoy telling a story of a bygone era. But Rhinehart is the real deal... she was writing her perfect little mysteries when Agatha Christie was still just a teenager. 'Man in Lower 10' was written in 1906, but includes musings on ecology and pollution, and the new technology of 'cinematographs' (movies). Of course, there also is the occasional racist stereotype, but she was scarcely alone in that. All in all, I think Rhinehart is my favorite writer of traditional mysteries ... and she is American, not English, so her locations are familiar to U.S. readers in a way the English writers can't match. *****5 Stars*****, easy.

By Mother of 9 on August 20, 2012
Format: Kindle Edition
This book was written around 1910. It was a very good mystery, with twists and turns to keep the reader guessing throughout. One of the things I love about books actually written 100 years ago, as opposed to written today and set in that time frame, is that the book reflects both life and attitudes of the times (for example, the train taking overnight to travel from Pittsburgh to Washington, a distance of only about 300 miles). I've recently begun reading these really old books of Mrs. Rhinehart's, and recommend them to fans of mystery and those who enjoy glimpses into changing attitudes and lifestyles.

Contained a lot of twists, but still a good book. Mary Roberts Rinehart is a good author and I enjoy her books.
