All in the Family: The Thanhouser Studio
Now enter Jim Norton, newspaper journalist and secret detective. He senses something suspicious about Braine and the Countess, so he decides to enter the general roll of good guys. But Braine is a cunning character. Thinking that Florence knows where the money is hid, he tries time and again to lure her into his clutches. Everything is used, from poisoned peaches to false accusations, from outright deception to forcible kidnapping. And while all this is going on, Norton and Jones counter Braine's machinations with their own. It seems for awhile that The Black Hundred is having a run of bad luck.
Perhaps they'll fail. Mighty forces are at work, however, and the Hargreave folks literally get a "run for their money," as they try to outwit Braine and his accomplices, and keep their hands on the stash-- before it's too late.
This terrifically fast-paced story is not a traditional novel, but the novelization of a film. It was written to cash in on the enormous success of The Thanhouser Corporation's reel serial The Million Dollar Mystery , released in Kunitz and Haycraft Twentieth Century Authors called it "one the greatest money-makers of pioneer cinema.
The Million Dollar Mystery by Harold MacGrath
It's no wonder, then, that the original story was made into its own book. The story-teller, Harold MacGrath, was a novelist by profession. I'm not sure if anyone actually won it, but a great deal of promotional material can still be found in the forms of posters and clippings. Now, for the facts. Harold MacGrath devised the original story. The story was then made into a scenario screenplay by Lloyd F.
Later, MacGrath made the scenario into a novel. Thus, the Million Dollar Mystery is actually a movie tie-in. The work itself has no literary value, but was written purely for entertainment's sake.

As such, it is far-fetched and outlandish at times. It contains wall-to-wall action and incident, with almost no diversional material. If it had been the author's first work, it wouldn't have gotten farther than the pulps.
