I mostly enjoyed this book though it went on a bit too long. It was an old fashioned story of love and murder.

Only the fact that the hero - a decent, polite, self-centered, and introspective young attorney - may well sound like the way Jim Killavey portrays him, makes it possible to tolerate the narrator.
Having said that, the book is a wonderful period piece, with an good mystery and a lot of very amusing goings on, and I find it a good antidote when I have been listening to more difficult books.
Although she is not in Edith Wharton's class for fine literature, Mary Roberts Rinehart gives a similar, but much gentler portrayal of the upper middle class life in her time, of which The Man in the Lower Ten is a great example. .
