About the Book

English novelist Marie Adelaide Belloc Lowndes wrote a book titled The Lodger. The short tale was initially released in the January 1911 issue of McClure's Magazine. The story is told from Ellen Bunting and Mr. Bunting's perspectives as they work together to run a hotel. On their first effort, they experience horrible luck since an epidemic breaks out close to where they started lodging. He only departs after dark, and his experiments involve setting his clothing on fire, which makes her suspicious. She allows him to stay despite her growing fear since they require the cash. After working as a waiter at a party and earning some extra cash, Mr. Bunting asks his daughter Daisy to visit them. He encounters Mr. Sleuth that evening as he travels home, as he is heading to the hotel. The butler notices that it was covered in blood and is suspicious. The next morning, two more bodies are found close by. Mr. and Mrs. Bunting leave the house at the same moment on Daisy's birthday. When they get to their destination, the girl informs them about her chat with the lodger, in which he requested that he may accompany Daisy and Ellen to Madame Tussauds. Mr. Sleuth threatens her and leaves because he thinks she betrayed him. His body was found five days later.

About Author

Marie Belloc Lowndes

Sister of author Hilaire Belloc, Marie Adelaide Elizabeth Rayner Lowndes (born Belloc; 5 August 1868-14 November 1947) was a prolific English novelist. The Chink in the Armour (1912; adapted 1922), The Lodger (1913; adapted many times), Letty Lynton (1931; adapted 1932), and The Story of Ivy (1912; adapted 1922) are four of her works that were adapted for the big screen (1927; adapted 1947). Belloc wed Frederick Sawrey A. Lowndes in 1896. (1868-1940). She was the only child of English feminist Bessie Parkes and French lawyer Louis Belloc. Hilaire Belloc, her younger brother, was a subject of her final writing. She wrote more than forty books, mostly mysteries, and at the same time as Agatha Christie established the Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, she also invented the French detective Hercules Popeau. She related her mother's life narrative, which was partly based on ancient family letters and her own memories of her formative years in France. Ernest Hemingway appreciated her understanding of female psychology, which was particularly evident in the scenario where the average mind was unable to handle the effect of the remarkable. Belloc passed away on November 14, 1947, in the Eversley Cross, Hampshire, house of her eldest daughter, the Countess Iddesleigh (wife of the third Earl), and was buried at La Celle-Saint-Cloud, near Versailles, France, where she had spent her formative years.
