Who killed Enid Withers? George Withers, her husband; Henry Morley, her sister's fiance; Perry Carpenter, her negro servant; the mysterious "man with a beard"? Who killed Enid Withers?
Lawrence Bristow, amateur investigator, first commissioned to solve the mystery, is later joined by Samuel Braceway, professional detective. Each has his own divergent theory as to the criminal and, while they work hand in hand, each is convinced that the other is following a losing clue. The finding of "the winning clue" leads to a denouement that is one of the most unexpected and startling in all detective fiction.
Jaded readers of mystery stories will revel in this book; clever readers who think they can "spot" the murderer will have their mettle tested in this bewilderingly ingenious novel.
e entire bungalow, they were, so far, without a clue. The murderer had left not the slightest trace of his identity or his manner of entrance to the death chamber.
"As I see it," said the captain when they rejoined Jenkins, "nobody broke into this house last night. But two men had admission to it. They were Mr. Douglas Campbell, the real estate man, and Mr. Henry Morley, who was calling on Miss Fulton. It's up to those two to tell what they know."
"But," objected the doctor, "Miss Fulton says Morley left town last night."
"Humph! Maybe that makes it look all the worse for Morley."
"But," suggested Bristow, "if we find that the front door was unlocked all night, the possibilities broaden."
"How will we find that out?"
"Miss Fulton might remember about it."
"She did mention that," put in Braley; "it was unlocked."
"All the same," insisted Greenleaf, "Morley's got to come back here. Wouldn't you say so?" This question was addressed to Bristow.
A very stupid rassistic book.
The talk about black persons is awfull.
It's even not well written.
This book drags on and on and more boringly on.
This book should be banned.
