Publisher's Summary

In a nearly empty house, a young woman finds herself alone with a killer.
As far as Carol Spencer is concerned, the war has spoiled everything. She and Don had been engaged for years and were on the verge of marriage when he was shot down in the South Pacific, leaving Carol on the verge of spinsterhood at 24. She wants to take some kind of job in the war effort, but her invalid mother demands that Carol accompany her to the family’s summer home in Maine. But when they arrive at the faded mansion, they find it completely locked up. The servants are gone, the lights are dark - and there is a body in the closet.
There is a killer on the grounds of the abandoned Spencer estate, and the police believe it is Carol. As war rages across the seas, Carol Spencer fights a private battle of her own - to prove her own innocence, and to save her mother’s life.

What did you like best about The Yellow Room? What did you like least?

I am a willing participant in just about anything written by Mrs. Rinehart. The Maine setting of this one was a particular draw

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Yellow Room?

The arrival of Carol's entourage at the surprisingly empty summer home

What didn’t you like about Liza Ross’s performance?

Oh, Ms Ross, Ms Ross--these people are in MAINE, the Northeastiest of the Northeastern states. Why then, dear, do you assign to each and every one of them the sounds of the Myid Wyest??! " Cyarol fyelt gryatefyul to the pyoint of tyears, ..." Ugh I was so put off by this that I could not finish. I'll just hunt up and read the book.
No objection to these accents in their proper place, however.
