Earl Derr Biggers, “The House Without a Key”


-The first novel featuring Detective Charlie Chan

“There was, she [Minerva Winterslip] noted, an imposing lock, but the key had long since been lost and forgotten. Indeed, in all Dan’s great house, she could not recall ever having seen a key. In these friendly trusting islands, locked doors were obsolete.”


The House Without a Key is the first novel of the Charlie Chan mysteries. Set in 1920s Hawaiʻi, it acquaints the reader with the look and feel of the islands, describing social class structures and customs of the era.
