The Leavenworth Case (1878), also known as A Lawyer's Story, is an American detective story and Anna Katharine Green's debut book. The murder of retired merchant Horatio Leavenworth at his New York house is the subject of this New York City-based story. The well-read book helped shape the detective fiction by introducing the investigator Ebenezer Gryce. The story opens with the murder and shooting of rich retired businessman Horatio Leavenworth in his library. No one could have left the Manhattan Mansion before the corpse was discovered the next day, according to the investigation conducted by Ebenezer Gryce and Everett Raymond. Mary and Eleanore, Leavenworth's orphaned nieces, Hannah the maid, and a strange guy who emerges on the scene all play a role in the inquiry as the narrative goes on.

About Author

Anna Katharine Green

An American poet and novelist named Anna Katharine Green lived from November 11, 1846, until April 11, 1935. She made a name for herself as one of America's earliest detective fiction authors by crafting carefully thought-out, factually accurate tales. "The mother of the detective novel," according to Green On November 11, 1846, Green was born in Brooklyn, New York. She communicated with Ralph Waldo Emerson and had a young aspiration to write a love poem. She wrote The Leavenworth Case (1878), her first and best-known novel after her poems failed to find an audience. Wilkie Collins complimented it, and it became the year's biggest hit. After writing 37 books over the course of 40 years, she eventually achieved bestseller status. Green wed Charles Rohlfs, an actor and stove designer who would eventually become a well-known furniture builder, on November 25, 1884. (1853 - 1936). Green's The Leavenworth Case was dramatized, and Rohlfs performed it on the road. He turned to making furniture in 1897 after his stage career failed, and Green worked with him on some of his ideas. Rosamund Rohlfs, Roland Rohlfs, and Sterling Rohlfs were their three children together. At the age of 88, Green passed away in Buffalo, New York, on April 11, 1935.
