The Mill Mystery

by Anna Katharine Green

A mysterious death at a remote mill sets the stage for a suspenseful mystery in which nothing is as it seems. "The Mill Mystery" is a novel by Anna Katharine Green that tells the story of the investigation into the death of a young woman at a remote mill. The victim, Laura Tupper, is found dead in the mill pond, and there are no witnesses to her death. The only clues are a few footprints in the mud and a mysterious letter that Laura was carrying. The investigation is led by District Attorney John Ransom and his assistant, Violet Strange. Ransom is a seasoned investigator, but he is quickly stumped by the case. The footprints lead nowhere, and the letter is full of cryptic messages. Strange, a young woman with a talent for observation and deduction, helps Ransom to piece together the clues. As the investigation progresses, Strange and Ransom uncover a web of secrets and lies. They learn that Laura was involved in a love triangle, and that she had a secret past. They also learn that the mill is haunted by a ghost, which may or may not be connected to Laura's death. The novel culminates in a dramatic showdown between Ransom and the killer.
