Dark Hollow

Dark Hollow by Anna Katharine Green
By: (1846-1935)

Dark Hollow by Anna Katharine Green is a gripping mystery novel that keeps readers hooked from beginning to end. The story follows a young woman named Theodosia who becomes involved in a murder investigation in a small New England town.

Green's writing is atmospheric and evocative, transporting readers to the eerie and secretive world of Dark Hollow. The characters are well-developed and the plot is full of twists and turns that keep you guessing until the final pages.

One of the strengths of the book is Green's ability to create a sense of tension and unease throughout, making it a truly suspenseful read. The pacing is excellent, with the tension mounting steadily as the mystery deepens and the stakes get higher.

Overall, Dark Hollow is a well-crafted and engaging mystery novel that will appeal to fans of the genre. Green's plotting is tight, her characters are compelling, and the setting is richly detailed. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a thrilling and immersive read.

Heard better stories by Ms Green and not all the readers were of a high standard either.

Subject: Outstanding!
An excellent mystery that kept my complete attention from start to finish. So far, it's the best I've read (heard) of Ms. Green's works.
