  • Book: The Man in Lower Ten
    By Mary Roberts Rinehart
    ...For those of you to whom the title phrase, "The Man in Lower Ten," is the first mystery of all, it refers to the Pullman railroad car "sleepers," the type of upper and lower berths still seen in old black-and-white films that sometimes run on TV screens in the late hours of the night. This mystery-romance, of the "Had I but known" school, is a superb example of its type, written by a master of the craft. ...

  • Book: The Red House Mystery
    By A.A. Milne
    ...Antony couldn't help feeling a thrill of excitement as he followed Cayley's example, and put his face close up to the glass. For the first time he wondered if there really had been a revolver shot in this mysterious room. It had all seemed so absurd and melodramatic from the other side of the door.
