Annie Haynes (1865-1929) was a renowned golden age mystery writer and a contemporary of Agatha Christie, another famous crime writer, which often led to her comparison with the latter, and unfavourably so. In her last years, while suffering from a ´´grave illness´´ Haynes continued to produce her mystery masterpieces (12 in total) amongst which ´´The Crime at Tattenham Corner´´ was published posthumously and ´´The Crystal Beads Murder´´ was completed by an anonymous friend. Haynes´s fictions are now lauded for their quick-pace action and sustaining aura of suspense till the end.
