Anna Katherine Green (1846-1935) was known for her complex plots, and the plot is the best thing about this book. There's no real development of several of the main characters. They just plunge into their adventures with glittering eyes and pounding hearts. Initially the mystery revolves around the death of a beloved young minister, Mr. Barrows, who's found drowned in the vat of an old abandoned mill. In a modern thriller, forensics would quickly determined if it was suicide or murder. But no such luck in 1886, when this book was published. One fee. Stacks of books.

Anna Katherine Green (1846-1935) was known for her complex plots, and the plot is the best thing about this book. There's no real development of several of the main characters. They just plunge into their adventures with glittering eyes and pounding hearts.

Initially the mystery revolves around the death of a beloved young minister, Mr. Barrows, who's found drowned in the vat of an old abandoned mill. In a modern thriller, forensics would quickly determined if it was suicide or murder. But no such luck in 1886, when this book was published. A beautiful young woman called Constance has to figure it out.

Constance is constant to a promise she made to her roommate Ada Reynolds, the fiancée of Mr. Barrows. Ada does not accept the idea of suicide and wants Constance to clear her lover's name of this awful suspicion. Ada drops dead of heart failure just after Mr. Barrows' death. Sudden deaths are rife in this novel.

Constance finds a sinister connection between the clergyman and the rich and locally prominent Pollard family. In the earliest stages of her contact with them, she's drawn to the oldest son of the family - a somewhat unconvincing case of love at first sight. This naturally complicates her investigation, which will be full of shocking discoveries.

Green at her best is a melodramatic but ingenious weaver of mysteries. She helped shape the genre of detective fiction, and her influence lives on in Miss Marple and Sherlock Holmes. This is not her best effort, however. I'd recommend instead The Leavenworth Case, her greatest mystery. Another good one is The House of the Whispering Pines. But if you're reading all her works, as I am, The Mill Mystery will be of interest.
Original
This is the darkest AK Green novel I've read, and I've read at least 20. The villains torture and manipulate the innocent--who suffer and die in direct proportion to their innocence. In the end, the villains get to keep what they plotted for--wealth and "nobility"--and having gotten away with moral, if not legal, culpability for murder, it can be assumed they will find murder all the easier if they find someone thwarting them in future. I am left queasy.

This copy contains a lot of spelling errors. It is also not well formatted and is missing some illustrations. They story is also just not very good. The characters are lacking in depth and the mystery is just ridiculous. I read a lot of mysteries from this era and this is one of the Morley written ones.

Very interesting and very different. I did enjoy it though and would recommend it to anyone who likes a mystery.
Vijora
This is an old fashioned mystery by an old time writer. Most of the action takes place within the mind or experience of Constance as she discovers the details of the story. It pulled me into her experience and kept my interested to the end. I will read more by this author.

the book was a little dated.
Kupidon
I really couldn't get into this book at all.
The characters were clear but the scenes and
environment of each situation didn't come through.
