In these three novels of romantic suspense, the Edgar Award winner proves once again that she “can weave an almost flawless mystery” (The New Yorker).
In a prolific career that spanned seven decades, Mignon G. Eberhart made a name for herself as “America’s Agatha Christie.” Praised by fellow writers ranging from Gertrude Stein, who called her “one of the best mystifiers in America,” to Mary Higgins Clark, who hailed her as “one of America’s favorite writers,” Eberhart penned classic mystery novels of romantic suspense, usually with female leads and often set in exotic locales. The three novels collected here—written in 1949, 1955, and 1964—offer further evidence that “Eberhart’s name on mysteries is like sterling on silver” (Miami News).
