Beschreibung

A Difficult Problem' is one of Green's short stories of crime and mystery. Anna Katharine Green was born in Brooklyn, New York, USA in 1846. She aspired to be a writer from a young age, and corresponded with Ralph Waldo Emerson during her late teens. When her poetry failed to gain recognition, Green produced her first and best-known novel, The Leavenworth Case (1878). Praised by Wilkie Collins, the novel was year's bestseller, establishing Green's reputation. Green wrote at a time when fiction, and especially crime fiction, was dominated by men. However, she is now credited with shaping detective fiction into its classic form, and developing the trope of the recurring detective.

A LADY to see you, sir.

I looked up and was at once impressed by the grace and beauty of the person thus introduced to me.

Is there anything I can do to serve you? I asked, rising.

She cast me a child-like look full of trust and candor as she seated herself in the chair I pointed out to her.

I believe so, I hope so, she earnestly assured me. I--I am in great trouble. I have just lost my husband--but it is not that. It is the slip of paper I found on my dresser, and which--which----

She was trembling violently and her words were fast becoming incoherent.

This was two weeks ago. Five days later I received an affectionate letter from him, in which he promised to come back the next day; and the news so delighted me that I accepted an invitation to the theater from some intimate friends of ours.
