The blood-stained rope and towel, the stray slipper, the broken knife—and the disappearance of the lovely Jennie Brice—were enough to convince Mrs. Pitman that murder had been commited in her boardinghouse. The police, however, were another matter. Without a tangible body, there could be no official murder charge.

Mrs. Pitman ran a respectable establishment and was not about to harbor a killer on the premises. If the police couldn’t see what was in front of their noses, then she would just have to take matters into her own hands. As the landlady, after all, she had the perfect excuse to do a little judicious snooping.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A money’s worth of chills and thrills.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Sometimes you have the good fortune to come upon a novel that’s like a suit tailored in Bond Street or an understated little black frock by a top designer, so exquisitely put together that you don’t quite realize you’re seeing something extra special until you take a second look. Even if the flood scenes were its only attraction, Jennie Brice would be well worth a second look.”

    Charlotte MacLeod in Had She But Known: A Biography of Mary Roberts Rinehart

    " Riveting mystery with unique setting: Early 20th century Pittsburgh in flood season. Made me want to re-read McCullough's The Johnstown Flood. "

    " This was my first read by this author. It won't be the last. I really like the way this turn of the centruy author includes day to day details of the lifestyle back then and the twists and turns her mysterys take. "

    " Bought this book on Cabbage Key Florida which is owned by the decendents of the author. A fun to read book especially if you enjoy the reading the stiff language of the upper class at turn of the century. I found it interesting that the author was known as the American Agatha Christie even though she published 14 years before Chrisie!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Vicki Seldon | 12/26/2013

    " I have learned that there is a bit more variety and subtlety to Ms. Rinehart's choices of plot and settings than I thought when I read 'The Bat' two decades ago. Locating the story in Pittsburgh during the winter floods is unusual and adds interest to the boarding house(rather than drawing room) setting. "
