In "My San Franisco" Gertrude Atherton described Mary Collins as "a brilliant member of the northern group, [who] has won a wide reputation as a writer of unusual mystery stories:. . . She has imagination, as distinct from invention, a remarkable flair for character pyschology, style and magnetism. And atmosphere. . . Mary is lovely to look at. She is tall and slender, has charming manners and knows how to dress." 208 pp.
