Lost Man's Lane

by Anna Katharine Green

Readers who recall the self-satisfied sagacity of Amelia Butterworth, as evidenced in the unravelling of the mystery of That Affair Next Door, will be grateful to the creator of that worthy spinster for the invention of this 'second episode.' In Lost Man's Lane the author shows that she has lost none of her cunning in inventing an intricate and absorbing plot, and in unfolding it carefully bit by bit by the agency of her chosen hero or heroine.

We have once more the friendly rivalry of Amelia Butterworth and Mr. Gryce, the aged detective inspector, working towards the same end--the solution of the mystery which gave the lane its name, and which made it to be shunned by nearly all the inhabitants of the village.
