In 1866, she graduated from Ripley Female College (now Green Mountain College) in Poultney, Vermont. Her first published book was The Leavenworth Case (1878), a major success, now considered the first American detective novel. In 1884, she married Charles Rohlfs, an actor who later became an acclaimed furniture designer, with whom she collaborated on some of his designs. The couple had three children. She became a bestselling author, eventually publishing about 40 books during her career.

This short detective story is either a long short story or a short novella... in either case, it is a good murder mystery. An agent of the Secret Service searching for clues to a ring of counterfeiters gets mistakenly mixed up in a family quarrel & happens to be on the spot when the family patriarch is poisoned.

Really short story, a pleasant little mystery with a cute solution and a sweet little back story for the girl that's the main suspect. I downloaded "The House in the Mist" from Project Gutenberg, and this story was one of three included in the text.

Maybe I just wasn't in the right mood for this, as I know others enjoyed it, but for me it read rather too melodramatically, and I was expecting some kind of twist near the end, which I didn't get.

This short story was one of three in the Project Gutenberg version of "The House in the Mist."

A rather surprising suspense type of story... heroine lives next door to a man who keeps to himself and is known to be eccentric. She raises the alarm one day when his house is on fire, and then he starts to visit her, wham, he proposes and they get married.

Their relationship is actually a bit weird, I got some serious "Gaslight" vibes off it, if you know what I mean.

It's clear all the way through that she's rather afraid of him, but still has this kind of passive attachment. By the end you're supposed to believe that they're going to be OK, but I don't care, I'm thinking he still probably shouldn't be trusted with sharp objects, etc.

For me, Anna Katherine Green hit a false note in this story, because the guy's character was too easily redeemed. Misdeeds of his magnitude don't just get swept under the rug. Still, the suspense was pretty well done, and based on these three short stories, I would read more by this author.
