Mary Roberts Rinehart (August 12, 1876 – September 22, 1958) was an American writer, often called the American Agatha Christie, although her first mystery novel was published 14 years before Christie's first novel in 1920. Rinehart is considered the source of the phrase "The butler did it" from her novel The Door (1930), although the novel does not use the exact phrase.

Mary Roberts Rinehart (August 12, 1876-September 22, 1958) was a prolific author often called the American Agatha Christie. She is considered the source of the phrase "The butler did it", although. she did not actually use the phrase herself, and also considered to have invented the "Had-I-But-Known" school of mystery writing.

Mary Roberts Rinehart truly understood people and described them timelessly. To my recollection, this is the first book I have read by Mary Roberts Rinehart. If her other books live up to this one, I'll happily read them all. This one has mystery, pathos, humor, and a thoroughly satisfying ending.

Mary Roberts Rinehart Crime Book: The Door the Confession and the Red Lamp. I think when Mary Roberts Rinehart tried to write with a man as the narrator she went pretty much off the track. Both the Man in Lower Ten and The Window at the White Cat are so so stories but they lack something that most of her stories which are female narrated have in abundance. Maybe it is because when she writes as a man narrator she tries to put a lot of humor in the portrayal of the man.

Mary Roberts Rinehart is one of the US's most popular early mystery authors, best known for her delightful mysteries.

Here is a mystery, but not a common mystery about crime. But about a man's life. He's so mysterious, his name is just a letter. We get to take a tour of the "street", with all its faults, and all its considerations. We learn about all the people, and their thoughts and feelings, and then, we get to see them all intertwine, like lace. With K and Sidney, and Max and Dr Ed, Aunt Harriet and Sidney's mother, and how their lives all touch. And then the mystery is solved, and it's astounding and happy. I love a happy ending.

Just couldn't get into it. I think this was mostly because of the formatting. They didn't seem to try to make paragraphs and dialog distinguishable. Plus, it's a rather older book, so the language is a little tough.

I must admit I didn't finish the book. If I ever do, I'll update my review.

Quite philosophical and very evocative of another time, other values, another world view.

Still has plenty to say about both good and evil. About second chances and the problem of sin....

Really fun to discover not what I think about people shortly after the turn of the 20th century, but of what people at the turn of the century thought about themselves.

I like Mary Roberts Rinehart mysteries but not so much her other books. She is a great writer in describing the culture and emotions of her characters. Her plots often seem the same though. I have read most of her books and this one is good but not her best.

Just read this for the second time. Love reading about those days and Rinehart is so entertaining. Be sure to read the "Tish" books.

Absolutely lovely tale with multiple love situations. K is such an ideal character and he is the center of the whole narrative even when it deals with the sub-stories. Thus one enjoys his actions and reactions throughout. This is essentially a love story with just a touch of mystery.

I love sweet, innocent romances with a twinge of mystery. Rinehart has a charming way of weaving such stories, while also growing her characters through hardship and self-realization. Overall, a pleasant read.
I love the story telling and weaving if this author. If you don't want a story to end, you have found a great author.
