The Circular Staircase, Mary Roberts Rinehart’s classic tale of murder and intrigue in a pre-World War I mansion, is evocative yet strangely modern, a sort of CSI: Downton Abbey, with butlers and maids sprinkled in amongst the bodies and evidence.
With elements of romance, white collar crime, class, race, poverty, and privilege, it’s a story told with such a deft hand that it will keep you guessing right to the end, all the while keeping you entertained with the trappings of the gilded age and a hint of the supernatural.
Sporting its famous 1952 Mapback jacket with original cover painting by Robert Stanley, this new edition from Blackbird Books is a must for all mystery readers.
