Publisher's Summary

Known for his comic sense, Earl Derr Biggers was one of the foremost writers of mystery and detective stories in this country. To his friends he was known for his comic sense. Seven Keys to Baldpate was his first novel and became extremely popular. In it, a famous author visits a closed summer resort at Baldpate Mountain in the middle of winter. He is looking for peace and quiet so that he can write his next book. However, before his first night is over, numerous unexpected visitors begin to fill the hotel, on strange and sometimes dangerous missions. The author finds that a fortune is at stake and that his visitors will do anything to possess it. Before the end of the week, there is gunfire, bribery, fights, and hidden truths are unmasked.
Seven Keys to Baldpate is an old-fashioned mysterious melodramatic farce. It was so popular that it was made into an extremely popular stage play by George M. Cohan and became the basis for no less than seven films.

Farce

A farce more than a serious mystery but very funny.

Good escapism

Downloaded this book in spite of the low "stars" at the time and I'm glad I did. Pure escapism, of course but great fun. Well done and well read. To each his own, I guess.
