A day after closing down the Whispering Pines country club house for winter break, the narrator is surprised to see what looks like smoke emanating from the building's chimney. Upon investigating, he witnesses his sister's fiancé flee the building crying and, upstairs, finds her dead body. The third book in Green's detective series featuring Caleb Sweetwater, “The House of the Whispering Pines” is a riveting page-turner brimming with intrigue not to be missed by fans of classic detective fiction. Anna Katharine Green (1846–1935) was an American novelist and poet. Among the first writers of detective fiction in America, she is considered to be the “mother” of the genre for her legally-accurate and well-thought-out plots. Other notable works by this author include: “The Leavenworth Case” (1878), “One of my Sons” (1901), and “The Circular Study” (1900). Read & Co. Classics is proudly republishing this vintage detective novel now in a brand new edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
