Miss Cornelia refused to be frightened out of the house by anonymous notes, even notes threatening death and presumably written by the terrible Bat. A stout soul was Miss Cornelia. She held her own conspicuously well in the battle of wits with the surly detective summoned from New York to protect the house, and if she was shaken by the double murder of that night and by the discovery that her niece's fiance and possibly the niece too were involved, she kept her head to the last and in a brilliant coup de main outwitted the Bat himself.

This novel made from the play which had New York keeping a secret for years is fully as good as the original entertainment, which is saying touch. If you thrill at all you will do so many times in the course of this truly creepy and at the same time highly humorous volume.
