„Masterpieces of Mystery” is a scintillating collection of suspenseful stories of murder and mayhem from pioneering American detective-story writer Anna Katharine Green, one of the first female writers of detective fiction. Green’s many thrillers were characterized by logical construction and a knowledge of criminal law. Her stories are full of mystery and written in an elegant manner, true to the time period in which the story is set. This collection includes the classic stories „Room No. 3”, „The Staircase at Heart’s Delight”, „The Grey Lady”, „The House in the Mist” and more. Tantalizingly tangled plots and unpredictable revelations abound. The collection is highly recommended for people who like to treat a mystery story as a solvable riddle.
