Anna Green was an early 20th century novelist. She was one of the first authors to write detective stories in America. Her stories are known for their well thought out plots and their legal accuracy. Although Green wrote in a genre previously dominated by men she did not think much of feminists and opposed women's suffrage. Published in 1878, The Leavenworth Case was her first novel. Leavenworth is a wealthy New York merchant with two beautiful nieces. When he is murdered circumstances suggest that the niece who is to inherit his fortune is the killer. But...is she?
