Politics and Poker ...

that was the occupation and the preoccupation of the members of the White Cat Club.

Once on the inside, a man’s business was his own and nobody gave a damn if he was the mayor of the town or the champion pool player of the first ward.

It was a noisy, crowded, masculine kind of retreat, which explained the sign that hung proudly over the door:

“The White Cat Never Sleeps.”

But murder entered the wakeful chambers of the White Cat and its victims slept the deep, long sleep of the dead.

"If ever woman had the unusual gift of turning out good mystery stories, absorbing as a picture puzzle, inevitable as a mathematical statement, well and directly told from start to finish, that woman is Mary Roberts Rinehart. 'The Window at the White Cat' will banish sleep from the eyes of countless readers." -Chicago Record-Herald

"The best story Mrs. Rinehart has written." -Pittsburgh Chronicle-Telegraph

"Absorbing, puzzling, well-sustained mystery stories, with human persons in them, and a cheering touch of humor, are the product of Mary Roberts Rinehart's ingenious and entertaining mind. 'The Window at the White Cat' offers a duplex, interlinked, baffling mystery, which holds its hatful of secrets to the end, while the hero blunders through clues and daring ventures and happy chances, to a duplex triumph." -Kansas City Star

"Mary Roberts Rinehart is the most popular writer of mystery stories in America. 'The Window at the White Cat' charms, cheers and absorbs." -New Orleans Item

"Mary Roberts Rinehart occupies a unique place among writers of mystery stories. She combines thrills with excellent comedy, spicing the excitement with legitimate humor. The latest and best example of her expert craftsmanship is 'The Window at the White Cat.'" -Philadelphia Press

"In both plot and development, 'The Window at the White Cat' is superior to the stories which have already brought Mrs. Rinehart fame. She has taken the palm and the laurel wreath away from all other contemporary writers of fiction of mystery, and common consent must now accord her the place at the head of the list." -Indianapolis News

"We have distinguished novelists and character psychologists, students of localities and types, but should anyone ask the name of America's best entertainer at present, by way of an out-and-out good storyteller, we should say unhesitatingly Mary Roberts Rinehart. In 'The Window at the White Cat' she is on her firmest ground." -Baltimore News
