Green, Anna Katharine: Cynthia Wakeham’s Money, LIT v1, 9 September 2009.
Anna Katharine Green [Mrs Charles Rohlfs] (1846–1935)
Cynthia Wakeham’s Money (1892)
A melodramatic mystery, in which a young lawyer is summoned to the house of a dying woman to draw up her will. In a search for her legitimate heirs, he encounters a beautiful woman with a mysterious scar. Events then take a very sinister turn…
As ever, with Anna Katherine Green, this early novel features love-struck young men; high-minded ladies with a propensity to faint, and whose reticence is essential to the plot; plus detailed legal knowledge. This one also has a particularly melodramatic villain.
The source was a scan at The Internet Archive, which I have restored, adding a TOC and cover.
