Read full description of the books Il pensionante:

Il signor Sleuth è magro, alto, indossa il mantello e porta uno strano cappello a cilindro. E per giunta ogni volta che esce dalla camera presa in affitto dai coniugi Bunting, il Vendicatore affonda i suoi colpi mortali in una Londra dall'aria nebbiosa e piovigginosa. Ce ne sarebbe abbastanza per trasformare quel signore allampanato in uno dei tanti Jack lo Squartatore di cui la letteratura è zeppa. Ma i dubbi dell'ex maggiordomo Robert Bunting,della moglie Ellen, della figlia di lui e del suo fidanzato su quel pensionante, che paga in anticipo garantendo la sopravvivenza della famiglia, possono anche non diventare certezza.

Read information about the author

Ebook Il pensionante read Online! Marie Adelaide Elizabeth Rayner Lowndes, née Belloc (5 August 1868 – 14 November 1947), was a prolific English novelist.

Active from 1898 until her death, she had a literary reputation for combining exciting incident with psychological interest. Two of her works were adapted for the screen.

Born in Marylebone, London and raised in La Celle-Saint-Cloud, France, Mrs Belloc Lowndes was the only daughter of French barrister Louis Belloc and English feminist Bessie Parkes. Her younger brother was Hilaire Belloc, whom she wrote of in her last work, The Young Hilaire Belloc (published posthumously in 1956). Her paternal grandfather was the French painter Jean-Hilaire Belloc, and her maternal great-great-grandfather was Joseph Priestley. In 1896, she married Frederick Sawrey A. Lowndes (1868–1940). Her mother died in 1925, 53 years after her father.

She published a biography, H.R.H. The Prince of Wales: An Account of His Career, in 1898. From then on, she published novels, reminiscences, and plays at the rate of one per year until 1946. In the memoir, I, too, Have Lived in Arcadia (1942), she told the story of her mother's life, compiled largely from old family letters and her own memories of her early life in France. A second autobiography Where love and friendship dwelt, appeared posthumously in 1948.

She died 14 November 1947 at the home of her elder daughter, Countess Iddesleigh (wife of the third Earl) in Eversley Cross, Hampshire, an was interred in France, in La Celle-Saint-Cloud near Versailles, where she spent her youth.
