Wealthy, middle-aged spinster Rachel Innes is persuaded by her niece Gertrude and nephew Halsey to take a house in the country for the summer. Rachel is unaware that the house hides a sinister secret, and soon unexplained happenings and murder follow.

The Circular Staircase is perhaps Mary Roberts Rinehart's most famous story. The tale mixes bone-chilling suspense and romance with good humor to produce an absorbing and entertaining mystery.
Profile Avatar

This story was not that engaging but the worst part of this story was the reader. She was horrible. Her voice was so flat and monotone. She is a character in the story as well as the narrator so she needs to stay in character for the whole story, but she sounded so flat and uninterested in what she was reading that I could hardly stand it. All the voices sounded the same. This actress was dreadful. I think that my response to some of the stories is often wrapped up with the readers. I wonder if I would like the story better if I just read it. Anyway, beware the reader. She's dreadful.
