Editorial Reviews

The Case of Jennie Brice takes listeners into the world of Mrs. Pittman, a clever landlady managing a rooming house in Allegheny City, Pennsylvania, at the turn of the century. Voiced by Cindy Hardin Killavey, Mrs. Pittman's wit and guile comes to the fore when she is faced with a blood-stained rope and towel and a missing tenant, the winsome Jennie Brice. Of course, Mrs. Pittman has something that the police don't: ready access to snoop around Jennie's room, and the fear of a killer on the premises. Listeners will be charmed and intrigued by this performance, which introduces a modern audience to the works of Mary Roberts Rinehart, often nicknamed "the American Agatha Christie".

Publisher's Summary

Mary Roberts Rinehart's name is synonomous with well-crafted mystery, and this novel, which combines both mystery and adventure, shows Rinehart's tremendously vivid powers as a storyteller. In this book, Mrs. Pittman, a boardinghouse keeper, is convinced that a murder has been committed in her house after discovering a series of suspicious clues. Mrs. Pittman, unsupported by the police, begins an informal investigation. Grisly discoveries and strange happenings soon follow.

Good Concept, Poor Execution

Story had a lot of potential and the author picked a very unique setting for the mystery. Additionally, the author's descriptive skills proved to be very good. Very easy to envision oneself standing in the scene. Unfortunately, the ending just petered out as if the author ran out of ideas. It was so unfulfilling that the author had to have the guilty party confess everything simply so she could tie-up loose ends. Most disappointing; however, was the narrator. No personality, no emotion. Just a stiff cardboard reading of the book with no animation or enjoyment whatsoever. Very disappointing.

Suspense - too much repetition

I like this writer's way of keeping you guessing. She develops her characters well and adds a slight bit of romance. Still this book was too repetitious with the clue review.
