Carolyn Wells [1862-1942]
The Gold Bag 
This mystery has been unkindly described as “The Leavenworth Case for Dummies.” Like Anna Katharine Green’s earlier detective novel it features a murdered millionaire, a missing will, a private secretary and a beautiful young woman who falls under suspicion. Can she be guilty? Will the modest and relatively inexperienced young detective fall for her?
However, while the plot may be somewhat clichéd, the pace moves briskly and the dialogue is more lively than Mrs. Green’s.
