Item description for The House Withoutthe Door (Henry Gamandge Mysteries) by Elizabeth Daly...

Mrs. Vina Gregson should be sitting pretty. Acquitted of murdering her husband, she has inherited all his money, and can afford to dress in the height of 1940s style. Unfortunately, her fashionable clothing and coiffure go unseen, and much of her money unspent, as the Widow Gregson remains essentially a prisoner, trapped in her elegant New York apartment with occasional, furtive forays to her Connecticut estate. A jury may have found her innocent, but Mrs. Gregson remains a murderer in the eyes of the public, and of the tabloid journalists who hound her every step. Worse, she has recently begun receiving increasingly menacing letters -- letters written, she is certain, by the person who killed her husband. Taking the matter to the police would only heighten her notoriety, so she calls on Henry Gamadge, the gentleman-sleuth known both for his discretion and for his ability to solve problems that baffle the police. Originally published in 1942, The House Without the Door is the epitome of the charmingly civilized mystery, offering ample proof as to why Ms. Daly was Agatha Christie's favorite writer. A Henry Gamadge mystery

Reviews - What do customers think about The House Withoutthe Door (Henry Gamandge Mysteries)?

Meet Henry Gamadge  May 31, 2008
Elizabeth Daly's Henry Gamadge is a character worth knowing. He is not a detective, but investigates only to help a friend, or a friend's friend, and the police, at first resnting this interference of a civilian, come to depend on his assistance. The development of plot, and the dialog of the characters, grip the reader's interest.
Old-fashioned detective  May 24, 2007
The greatest charm of this book is seeing what was taken for granted by the characters living in NYC in the 1930s, large staff, a "small" apartment with only 4 bedrooms.... The puzzle itself is fairly obvious, and the set-up, Gamandge an older man married to a much younger woman who wants to please him, and his strange lab assistant, sounds more interesting than it is.
