This mystery is part of the famous "Had-I-But-Known School" of mysteries founded by Mary Roberts Rinehart with the 1908 publication of her first work, The Circular Staircase. The story deals with civic corruption, a popular theme of early American mysteries. Stories like this anticipate the hard-boiled school to come. So does Rinehart's realistic style, which does not gloss over life's problems.

I will read more Mary Roberts Rinehart, in fact I've already purchased another of her books. But this one is NOT narrated by Jim Killavey? His reading is almost like a computerized voice.
As above, his voice inflections were almost non-existent. He reads like a computerized recorded message.
