    " Mystery house novel with a hint of romance. Fun to read. I'm happy to report there was humour in the beginning of 20th Century. I want to be a professional hermit, too. Also, I'm glad more women nowadays don't see themselves as only an addition to a man and a cooking machine. "

    " Not as good as his Charlie Chan books. Have visited Baldpate Inn in Estes Park, Colorado. Quite the key collection, including a key to a submarine. "

    " I saw this play and liked it so thought I would read the book. They were quite a bit different. The play was a lot sillier and faced paced. The book was interesting to read though. It was suspenseful and well written. I enjoyed it except for the occasional swear word thrown in. "
