The Leavenworth Case

by Anna Katharine Green


In stock


Initially published in 1878, this book is the first full-length detective story written by a woman and is also considered the first American mass market best-seller. The fact that it is still in print attests to its merit. The Leavenworth Case is considered the author’s best work. So why is the book offered alongside so many books on the Arts and Crafts movement? The answer: Anna Katharine Green was married to Charles Rohlfs, the Arts and Crafts furniture guy.  Back in the day, most people knew who Katharine Green was-far more people than knew or cared about Charles Rohlfs.  Read this book and find out why! (And why so many of her other 30+ books are still read today.)
