The Window at the White Cat

The Window at the White Cat

The White Cat, Rinehart's mystery in which Mr. Jack Knox, attorney-at-law, has to figure out who murdered his client Margery's father, where her aunt disappeared, and why valuables were stolen-- all before he disappears next. Oh, and did we mention the young lady's fiance is a suspect and that The White Cat is a clandestine political club, known for serving beer, illegal favors, along with an occasional murder. Our favorite Jack Knox quote: "In my criminal work anything that wears skirts is a lady, until the law proves her otherwise." Enjoy Ms. Rinehart's who-done-it, first published in 1910.
