"Mary Roberts Rinehart (August 12, 1876 – September 22, 1958) was an American writer, often called the 'American Agatha Christie,' although her first mystery novel was published 14 years before Christie's first novel. Rinehart is considered the source of the phrase 'The butler did it' from her novel The Door (1930), although the novel does not use the exact phrase. Rinehart is also considered to have invented the 'Had-I-but-Known' school of mystery writing, with the publication of The Circular Staircase (1908). (Wikipedia). Will require extra postage.
