Right now, if you sign up, you’ll also receive a FREE ebook copy of The Leavenworth Case!

Published nine years before Sherlock’s first appearance, this debut novel by the Mother of American Detective Fiction would be credited as changing the mystery genre forever. The Leavenworth Case‘s dynamic prose and intriguing characters—especially the introduction of Detective Gryce, the first recurring American detective in fiction—would set the stage for all mystery novels written thereafter. After its publication, Yale University would add The Leavenworth Case to its required reading list in law classes, as an admirable example of the perils of circumstantial evidence. 

Agatha Christie would credit it as one of the books that encouraged her to try her hand at writing mystery in the first place. Filled with all the recognizable devices now used by the modern mystery author, Anna Katharine Green was the first to compile them all into one novel that was an overnight bestseller from the moment it hit the shelves, selling over a million copies by the time of her death.

This edition includes an engaging introduction by Patricia Meredith, author of A Deed of Dreadful Note, the first historical fiction mystery featuring Anna Katharine Green as an amateur investigator, and centering on the events that would lead to her writing of her debut novel, an effort that would take six years beginning in 1872, ending with its publication in 1878.

“The Leavenworth Case is admirable. One savors its atmosphere, its studied and deliberate melodrama. Those rich and lavish descriptions of the golden beauty of Eleanor, the moonlight beauty of Mary!… and there is the maidservant, Hannah, so true to type, and the murderer, an excellent psychological study.”
—Hercule Poirot in The Clocks by Agatha Christie
