Rita: The Mystery of a Turkish Bath, v.1, 12 November 2008
The Mystery of a Turkish Bath (1888)
By Rita [Eliza Margaret Jane Gollan], (1850–1938).
Produced by Nick Hodson of London, England, for Project Gutenberg.
A sensational novelette, set in a ladies’ Turkish bath at an English spa town. Many mysteries are noted (what does an elegant lady wear in a Turkish bath?
