Description
Also the editor of The Penguin Book of Victorian Women in Crime and Dracula's Guest: A Connoisseur's Collection of Victorian Vampire Stories, Michael Sims here takes us back to the roots of the detective genre. This hefty volume includes stories by Mark Twain, Charles Dickens, Wilkie Collins, and Arthur Conan Doyle, as well as the forgotten author who helped inspire Edgar Allan Poe's "The Murders in the Rue Morgue." Here too are a surprising range of talented female authors and detectives. The 1866 title story, by Australian writer Mary Fortune, is the first known detective story by a woman—a suspenseful, clue-strewn manhunt through the Outback.
