Reviews

A most enjoyable and intriguing book.
You owe it to yourself to read this collection. The reader is sure to be amazed, delighted, and entertained from one end of the book to the other.
A winner for fans of classic mysteries and a complete joy.
Stellar. Much more than quaint curiosities, the 16 entries from women crime writers who preceded Christie are enjoyable in their own right. This is a must-have volume for classic crime fans.
Klinger the archivist and editor has done the field an invaluable service by excavating so many stories. Shows Victorian women actively working the field long before Miss Marple.
Illuminating and entertaining.
Unreservedly recommended for community libraries and the personal reading lists of dedicated mystery buffs.
Beautifully published and full of delights.
A welcome addition to anyone's library of crime fiction.
Klinger, as one of the world's foremost early crime fiction experts, has selected a wide array of stories by women crime writers in the Anglophone world, taking us through the birth of the genre in the 19th century up to just before WWI.
