Abstract:

Someone's trying to kill the head of the Fairbanks estate, and only her nurse can protect her. Reissued for the first time in over twenty years, and featuring one of Mary Roberts Rinehart's only series characters. The Haunted Lady is the thrilling follow-up to Miss Pinkerton, also available from American Mystery Classics.

Eliza Fairbanks may be old, but she's hardly senile-- and someone is trying to kill her. The arsenic in her sugar bowl is the first clue. The nightly plagues of bats, birds, and rats in her bedroom were the second indication. Hilda Adams-- 'Miss Pinkerton'-- is a nurse, not a detective, but she has the opportunity to witness the inner workings of the household. Her investigation uncovers a web of intrigue. -- adapted from jacket
