Publisher's Summary

"Horatio Leavenworth, Esq., a millionaire, is murdered in his library while he is engaged in reviewing a book he plans to publish. He was shot cleanly in the back of the head (with his own pistol), meaning that he did not turn his head when his assassin entered the room. This fact led detective Ebenezer Gryce to conclude that he recognized the footsteps of his assailant and felt he had nothing to fear from this person."

Thus begins this first novel in the "Mr. Gryce" series. Anna Katharine Green was one of the first writers of detective fiction in America and distinguished herself by writing well-plotted, legally accurate stories. She is credited with shaping detective fiction into its classic form, and developing the series detective.

Wrong narrator

Because of the era in which this was written I expected the style of writing / narration, however getting a woman to read the novel when the main character is a man was a huge mistake and for me totally spoiled the whole thing.
