Anna Green was an early 20th century novelist. She was one of the first authors to write detective stories in America. Her stories are known for their well thought out plots and their legal accuracy. Although Green wrote in a genre previously dominated by men she did not think much of feminists and opposed women's suffrage. Her second novel A Strange Disappearance was published in 1880. Other books by Ana Green include: The House of the Whispering Pines, Miss Hurd, An Enigma, Leavenworth Case, That Affair Next Door, and Sword of Damocles.
