About the Book

The Man in Lower Ten is written by Mary Roberts Rinehart and was initially published in 1909. Nevertheless, it is still extremely readable today and offers a fascinating glimpse into a period that is nearly a century removed from our own while maintaining a timeless emotional tone. the first detective book to top bestseller charts across the country. Lawrence, an attorney-in-law, gets framed after he wakes up on the wrong side of the bed, in the wrong bed, with the wrong clothing on, and with his suitcase. He was on his way to deliver important documents related to a criminal case. Blakely is aware that he must track down the genuine criminal before being arrested, but regrettably, our hero is not your typical tough-guy hero. The first book ever published by Mary Roberts Rinehart, possibly the best American mystery author of her generation, is The Man in Lower Ten. It moves at breakneck speed while fusing adventure, suspense, terror, and mystery. The Circular Staircase (1908), which more or less popularized the spinster "Had I but Known" style most generally associated with the author, was Mary Roberts Rinehart's (1876-1958) debut book, but it didn't come out between hard covers until the year after.

About Author

Mary Roberts Rinehart

American author Mary Roberts Rinehart, also known as the American Agatha Christie, was born on August 12, 1876, and died on September 22, 1958. The Circular Staircase, Rinehart's debut mystery novel, introduced the "had I but known" narrative approach. Although the exact phrase does not occur in Rinehart's book The Door (1930), she is regarded as the creator of the "the butler did it" story device. As one of the first women to visit the front lines in Belgium during World War I, she also worked to share the tales and experiences of these troops. Mary Ella Roberts, who is now known as Rinehart, was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania's Allegheny City. Olive Louise, Mary's sister who is four years Mary's junior, went on to become well-known as a children's book author and nationally syndicated newspaper columnist. Her father was a frustrated inventor, and the family experienced frequent monetary issues throughout her youth. Mary was just 19 years old when her father committed suicide. She was trained to use her right hand because she was left-handed at a time when that was improper. Her autobiography, titled My Story, was first published in 1931 and then rewritten in 1948.
