The Circular Staircase...

"This is the story of how a middle-aged spinster lost her mind, deserted her domestic gods in the city, took a furnished house for the summer out of town, and found herself involved in one of those mysterious crimes that keep our newspapers and detective agencies happy and prosperous. . ."

And so begins The Circular Staircase, Mary Roberts Rinehart's classic mystery tale featuring a bank failure, a murder, mysterious intruders, a kidnapping, arson and a characteristically complex plot which twists and turns like the circular staircase that figures so prominently, and ominously, in setting the scene for a series of mysterious events.

Mary Roberts Rinehart

Mary Roberts Rinehart (August 12, 1876-September 22, 1958) was a popular and successful American writer best known for her mysteries. Sometimes referred to as "the American Agatha Christie," Rinehart's first mystery novel actually appeared over a decade before Christie's. She is considered the originator of the "Had-I-But-Known" style of mystery, as well as the source of the phrase "The butler did it."
