The wealthy Wainwrights become enmeshed when they are subject to strange visitations, a wounded man is found on their premises, another man is murdered—and traced to their swimming pool. Young Pat Abbott, Widow Wainwright’s secretary-companion, tells the story, and reveals her growing love for Tony, son of Mrs. Wainwright’s first marriage, whose life is ruined by a beastly wife whose arrival introduces further complications. Additional murders and threats of murder—and eventually the apprehension of the killer. In her usual chatty vein, sometimes on the repetitious side, of novel-cum-mystery-cum-romance-plus obstacles.—Kirkus Reviews. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Rinehart, Mary Roberts

Author Image

Mary Roberts Rinehart (August 12, 1876–September 22, 1958) was an American writer, often called the American Agatha Christie. Rinehart published her first mystery novel The Circular Staircase in 1908, which introduced the "had I but known" narrative style. Rinehart is also considered the source of "the butler did it" plot device in her novel The Door (1930), although the exact phrase does not appear in her work.
