Kate’s 2¢: “Glass On The Stairs” by Margaret Scherf

“Glass On The Stairs” by Margaret Scherf

Kate’s 2¢: There is a plethora of in-depth biographies of authors and reviews of their books, that state the title, author, published date, and genre; as well as, describing what the book is about, setting, and character(s), so, Kate’s 2¢ merely shares my thoughts about what I read. I’m just saying…

Scherf does a good job of obfuscating the culprit with numerous possible perps. I thought it was interesting that the married couple, Henry and Emily Bryce, slept in separate, twin beds, but, this story was written a long time ago during a different culture. I’m still a bit confused about the neighborhood and how the buildings were in relation to the other buildings, but, at the end, the culprit explains exactly how it was all done, so, the building logistics didn’t really matter. I enjoyed this fast paced story.
The version I listened to was recorded in the studio of the Montana Talking Book Library, November 18, 2015 by Joan Bishop .

From the Web:
Margaret Scherf (1908-1979) was an American mystery writer. She was born in West Virginia and attended public schools in New Jersey, Wyoming, and Montana before graduating from Antioch College in 1928. Scherf then moved to New York, working as a secretary to the editor at Robert McBride & Company for a year.
Scherf is best known for her many humorous murder mysteries. Scherf’s writing career spans from 1940 to 1978. Her writing career came to an abrupt end in 1979 when she was killed by a drunken driver.
