The Forsaken Inn by Anna Katharine Green

The Forsaken InnThe Forsaken Inn by Anna Katharine Green
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Anna Katharine Green was considered the "Mother of Historical Mystery", a John Grisham of her time and then some.

This was my first reading of her works and I loved it. She has all the elements required for a good mystery. A wonderful imaginative novel. A creepy Inn holds a secret passage that even the owner doesn't know about.

One night a newly wed couple comes to the stay the night. He is lugging a heavy box which he says is books.

Sixteen years later, another man, Mr. Tamworth, visits the Inn and tells the owner quite a tale.

Great works by this author and I will be reading more from her list.
