Post Orczy, Baroness: Lady Molly of Scotland Yard. v5. 4th Mar 2010

Best known as the creator of the daring Scarlet Pimpernel, The Baroness Orczy ought also to be remembered for bringing to life a trailblazing pair of detectives. One was the cranky Old Man in the Corner (available as a separate download in this forum), 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 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.

Enjoy!
