Having been introduced to Anna Katherine Green through her story 'The Woman in the Alcove' and been impressed by the plot, I decided to try some more of her work. Overall the collection here maintains that high standard. There are some long stories and some shorts, involving different central characters and detectives, from 'official investigators' to decidedly unusual casual sleuths. Her stories are generally well thought out, although sometimes, especially in the shorts, there is a bit of presenting a solution without much evidence for it. The plots vary also between detection and adventure, so there is quite a variety in the collection. The author was writing around a hundred and more years ago, so expect the style and procedures of the time; somewhat different from today.
I occasionally found her a little brutal in the way she presents the story, but that is a matter of taste.
As for the presentation of the Kindle product, it is well set out with few errors. However there is one duplication of a short story, that oddly enough is presented under two different titles. So, the final mystery of this collection is: is this a mistake by the publishers, or did Anna Katherine Green actually write the same story twice?

Still working on these stories. The pace is so much slower than modern novels, but the puzzles are interesting as is the picture of life 100 years ago. It is not just what is said, but what is assumed. And one of the thIngs that is assumed is that you have plenty of time to read and are in no hurry to get to the end. But finishing them all and enjoying it. She has a good deal of legal expertise.

This writer is who she is so the stories are antique in a lot of ways but that is the fun of them. Don't expect any real mystery.
