Agatha Webb

by Anna Katharine Green

Really good mystery tale. Anna Katharine Green is often credited as the author who first popularized detective fiction. Arthur Conan Doyle went out of his way to meet her when he first toured the US. I have read about five of her books and they are a little hit and miss, with some a little too formulaic and predictable. Agatha Webb is masterful and engaging.
