Overview

Best known as the creator of the daring Scarlet Pimpernel, The Baroness Orczy (1865?1947) ought also to be remembered for bringing to life a trailblazing pair of detectives. One was the cranky Old Man in the Corner, an early "armchair" sleuth. The other isn’t at all sedentary (and is a lot more likable) — Lady Molly of Scotland Yard. Feisty, brilliant, and beautiful; precursor of the lay sleuth who relies on brains rather than brawn, Lady Molly, and her faithful sidekick and admiring chronicler Mary, began appearing in Orczy’s entertaining stories years before the first Englishwoman did in fact become an officer of the law. These twelve clever, agreeably unportentous adventures of "my lady" were unknown to us before acclaimed novelist Alice Thomas Ellis brought them to our attention, and we’re most delighted she did.

What a refreshing series of whodunits by an author who has not received as much attention as she ought. These stories left me wanting more. Highly recommend to the lover of old mystery classics.

Lady Molly of Scotland Yard is a collection of short stories that are repetative in style. As a lover of Vicotrian mysteries Lady Molly does not live up to the genre.
