She is young, well-dressed, and is just beginning a promising career as a reporter; he is old, thin, peculiar looking----almost scarecrow like wearing a gaudily checked ulster. Yet he fascinates her more than any man she has ever known. No, their meeting is hardly romantic, but it is quite 'Po-etic', owing as it does a great deal to the father of the detective story."----from the Introduction. Read more Show Less

Meet the Author

Baroness Orczy was born in Hungary in 1865, the daughter of Baron Felix Orczy, a landed aristocrat and well-known composer and conductor. Orczy moved with her parents from Budapest to Brussels and Paris, where she was educated. She studied art in London and exhibited work in the Royal Academy.

She married Montagu Barstow and together they worked as illustrators and jointly published an edition of Hungarian folk tales.

Orczy became famous in 1905 with the publication of The Scarlet Pimpernel (originally a play co-written with her husband). Its background was the French Revolution and its swashbuckling hero, Sir Percy Blakeney, was to prove immensely popular. Sequel books followed and film and TV versions were later made.

Orczy also wrote detective stories which still prove popular and are equally acclaimed within this genre.

She died in 1947.
