Mary Roberts Rinehart has often been called the mistress of mystery. In fact, the phrase “the butler did it” originated in one of her books. In 1905 Rinehart entered a field exclusive to men: detective fiction. Now, nearly a century after she began her ground-breaking career, her celebrated thrillers still remain un-put-down-able masterpieces.

Rinehart’s The Man in Lower Ten, the first American detective novel to make the bestseller list, follows the investigation of the murder of a man in a sleeping car on a train. In this fast-paced thriller, the investigating detective builds up a network of clues that absolutely incriminate three entirely different people—only one of whom can be guilty.

    " Good but not great mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy | 10/21/2012

    " Wow! A murder mystery so convoluted that I wonder that the author was able to keep track of all her characters and their actions. I enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Jowett | 9/1/2012

    " Man, the language makes this a hard plot to follow but it's worth reading. Half the time, I had no idea what was going on (also because if the difference in customs and etiquette, not just language) and I waited until the end of the book to have everything laid out for me, ha. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kessie | 3/17/2011

    " Great mystery! It kept me guessing until the end--so many suspects and motives! If I can write a mystery half as good someday, I'll call myself a writer. "

    " Free download to my kindle.

    Go back to the 1910s, when women hid their smarts and men thought they were smart. Good little murder mystery with plenty of suspects that takes place on a train. "

About the Author
Author Mary Roberts Rinehart

Mary Roberts Rinehart (1876–1958), born in Pittsburgh, was a novelist and playwright best known for her mystery stories, which combined humor with ingenuity. The success of her novels The Circular Staircase and The Man in Lower Ten established her reputation as an important American mystery writer; at one time she was the highest paid writer in America. In addition to mysteries, she wrote comic tales, plays, romances, and travel books, some of which reflected her experiences as a correspondent during World War I. One critic called her autobiography, My Story, her finest book.
