Synopsis

In The Circular Staircase "a middle-aged spinster is persuaded by her niece and nephew to rent a country house for the summer. The house they chose belonged to a bank defaulter who had hidden stolen securities in the walls. The gentle, peace-loving trio is plunged into a series of crimes solved with the help of the aunt." The Had-I-But-Known mystery novel is one where the principal character does things in connection with a crime that have the effect of prolonging the action of the novel. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Roberts_Rinehart

It's got enough of a twist that the key villain may not be so key.

An interesting murder/mystery. Well written with a twisted sequence of events which makes it difficult to guess the outcomes. I would rate this author on a level with Ngao Marsh and Agatha Christie.

I can't believe I overlooked this gem of a mystery just because I'm a lifelong Agatha Christy fan! BUT, "The Circular Staircase" keeps the reader guessing over and over again. Every time I thought I had the mystery solved, WAM!! another clue turns up! Mary Roberts Reinhardt will keep you reading all night long. I hope you enjoy "The Circular Staircase", it's a classic.
