The House Without the Door, by Elizabeth Daly


The House Without the Door
By Elizabeth Daly
1942


It appears that Elizabeth Daly wrote about sixteen books chronicling the adventures of Henry Gamadge in the years from 1940 to 1951. Gamadge is an expert in rare books and documents and an amateur detective who is assisted in the latter venture by his wife and his live-in assistant Harold.

In The House Without the Door Gamadge is called upon to find out why a woman who had been acquitted of her husband's murder some years back has come close to becoming the victim of four separate attempts on her life. He springs into action and methodically goes about sorting it out. The ending was certainly not one that I saw coming but maybe a more shrewd reader of these kinds of books would have done so.

Worth a look. Here's some more info about Daly.
