This sounds terrific! Have you read The Leavenworth Case, which is the one that seems to be her most well-known?

I haven't yet - and it's the only one still in print. I'm definitely planning on reading it at some point in the future, and I'd like to find her out-of-print titles too; there seem to be a wide variety of affordable editions out there. I really enjoyed this - I kept thinking this was like the best of the old Barbara Michaels or Phyllis A. Whitney titles (without the romance)!

I assume that you're big on actual paper books you can hold in your hand, but Project Gutenberg does have a bunch of this author's stuff uploaded. I'm going to check her out there.

You assume rightly. :) I do prefer print, and because of medical reasons I'm actually supposed to avoid e-reading anyway, so my preference is supported by dr.'s orders. :D

BUT, thank you for mentioning about Project Gutenberg; it's helpful to know her stuff is on there for everyone else who embraces their e-readers. I always feel bad raving about out of print stuff; knowing there's a resource for finding it makes it so much nicer. :)
This bodes well for both the Detection Club and the Women Writers bingos ...

What is this Women Writers bingo of which you speak? I've obviously missed it, and it sounds like the bomb!

Definitely - if the rest of her stuff is as good as the short story and this novel are (or better!) than there will be a lot of great options for people wanting to go really old school. :)
