The Professor’s Mystery

This vintage mystery was written in 1911 by Wells Hastings. It was a little different in that the mystery was not a murder. It was charming and I did enjoy it. Having missed his boat to Europe the Professor gets on a train and meets up with a young lady he had met once previously at a party. He is smitten with her and decides to follow her to her hometown and embark on an adventure! On the way they are in a trolley accident and he helps her to her house where he is invited to spend the night as it is late already. But, during the night strange goings on begin and he is locked in his room and then abruptly asked to leave before dawn. His curiosity peaked, he decides to stick around and see what has happened. As time goes on he fears that ‘Lady’ is in danger of some kind and is determined to get to the bottom of it. I give this little mystery 3 stars. It is available in ebook form free at Project Gutenberg
