The Window at the White Cat

Mary Roberts Rinehart

"So when Hawes announced a lady, I took my feet off my desk, put down the brief I had been reading, and rose perfunctorily. With my first glance at my visitor, however, I threw away my cigar, and I have heard since, settled my tie. That this client was different was borne in on me at once by the way she entered the room. She had poise in spite of embarrassment, and her face when she raised her veil was white, refined, and young."

Sinister activities occur at a private club in this early who-done-it by Mary Roberts Rinehart from 1910. Rinehart wrote over 30 novels and many more articles and short stories. While her writing covered a wide range, she is best remembered for her mystery stories. The Window at the White Cat was her second novel and mystery story, following The Circular Staircase that established her career and fame.
