The Woman in the Alcove
“I was, perhaps, the plainest girl in the room that night. I was also the happiest—up to one o’clock. Then my whole world crumbled, or, at least, suffered an eclipse. Why and how, I am about to relate.” Thus begins this mystery told by Anna Katharine Green, one of the first writers of detective fiction in America and renowned for writing well plotted, legally accurate stories.

I can't say enough of this author. I enjoy her writings so much. This was just as twisty and mysterious as her others. The characters were not as like able as some of her other books, but well told just the same. To keep all her story lines going at once without confusing them is a gift for sure. Plan on emersing yourself into another time.
