The Leavenworth Case

by Anna Katharine Green

As her first published mystery this wasn't a bad read at all. Like some others I get a tad annoyed when a main character isn't logical or thinking. I also find that sometimes a character can remember word for word, conversations and circumstances that a seasoned reporter would have difficulty with. But I have to remind myself that the era in which the story is set did not have the luxuries we all take for granted. Things like education and experience, voting, and it can be difficult for readers (myself included) to understand women who never enjoyed the freedom from social disdain that we do now. Even the clothing was stifling and life restricting for both sexes.
Anna K Green's work improved as time went on. I've enjoyed most of her books but always look to see what year it was written. I'm in awe at how much she's written and surmise it was all hand written at the time. An amazing writer and one any aspiring writer should read.

Andy at Yale

by Roy Eliot Stokes

I enjoy a great "who dun it" but this wasn't one of them. Too many detailed descriptions on ball games the MC was involved in rather than the story itself.
In the end (which I almost prayed for)I figured the MC should have had enough "gray cells" since he was a "Yale Student" to get the gist of what was going on in the first place!

The Green God

by Frederic Arnold Kummer

I cannot agree with the "Rochester Post Express". Neither Poe or Doyle would have let this manuscript out to a publisher. They would have been too embarrassed!
While I can understand the morals of the day in which the story is set, I find it completely beyond my comprehension how some females are so totally inept and thick! Some of the men are just as bad if not worse as this story unfolds.
The premise was good initially but things just seemed to get worse as I read on to the end.

Say Yes to Murder

by Todhunter Ballard

I enjoyed this mystery. It had action, thought, and red herrings. The characters came across as real people and it all made a darn good READ!
