About the Author:

Anna Katharine Green (November 11, 1846 – April 11, 1935) was an American poet and novelist. She was one of the first writers of detective fiction in America and distinguished herself by writing well plotted, legally accurate stories. Green has been called "the mother of the detective novel.” With such memorable detectives as Ebenezer Gryce, New York City police officer and spinster sleuth Amelia Butterworth, Green successfully uses many of the genres' plot devices such as expert witnesses, medical inquiry, dead bodies found in libraries, and ballistics experts to find weapons. Her expert detailing of the logical procedure through discovery of possibilities, deduction, and reasoning won her readership all over North America and Europe. She maintained a correspondence with Ralph Waldo Emerson, admired Émile Gaboriau, and influenced Agatha Christie. Her first detective novel, the 1878 book ‘The Leavenworth Case’ is widely regarded as the first American detective novel. A murder mystery which introduced the fictional detective, Ebenezer Gryce, to the literary world, it was the first such novel ever written by a woman, and in the views of some historians, the first bona fide American bestseller. It was so highly regarded for its insight into legal matters that it was used in Yale University law classes as an example of the perils of trusting circumstantial evidence.
