"Read the work of the woman who inspired Agatha Christie! THE CIRCULAR STUDY features Ebenezer Gryce, a portly policeman who together with Mrs. Amelia Butterworth, the little old lady snoop who inspired the creation of Mary Roberts Rinehart's Miss Rachel Innes, Agatha Christie's Miss Marple and Patricia Wentworth's Miss Silver (to cite just a few examples) must solve the murder! Told in a variety of formats (i.e. narrative, letters, diary) & by different characters - it provides clues for the reader so they become detectives too - a powerful technique few authors could match. She was the first female writer of detective fiction and today still sets the standard. Green's many fans included such literary luminaries as Arthur Conan Doyle, Mary Roberts Rinehart, and Agatha Christie. In fact, both Rinehart and Christie claimed that it was Green which first inspired them to become writers. Her books were loved by Doyle, Rinehart, and Christie - and soon by you too!" (Amazon Synopsis)

"Anna Katharine Green (November 11, 1846 – April 11, 1935) was an American poet and novelist. She was one of the first writers of detective fiction in America and distinguished herself by writing well plotted, legally accurate stories"She was born in Brooklyn, New York on November 11, 1846.[1]

"Green had an early ambition to write romantic verse, and she corresponded with Ralph Waldo Emerson. When her poetry failed to gain recognition, she produced her first and best known novel, The Leavenworth Case (1878), praised by Wilkie Collins, and the hit of the year. She became a bestselling author, eventually publishing about 40 books.

She is credited with shaping detective fiction into its classic form, and developing the series detective. Her main character was detective Ebenezer Gryce of the New York Metropolitan Police Force, but in three novels he is assisted by the nosy society spinster Amelia Butterworth, the prototype for Miss Marple, Miss Silver and other creations. She also invented the 'girl detective': in the character of Violet Strange, a debutante with a secret life as a sleuth.

Green was in some ways a progressive woman for her time—succeeding in a genre dominated by male writers—but she did not approve of many of her feminist contemporaries, and she was opposed to women's suffrage." (Wikipedia)
