Pirkis, C L: Loveday Brooke, Private Detective (1894), v2, 21 Aug 2020

Just about the earliest lady detective, in the wake of the Sherlock Holmes tidal wave. Seven short stories of detection, in which Loveday Brooke is an operative of a London private detective agency.

Catherine Louisa Pirkis 1839-1910. The full, long, title is: "The Experiences of Loveday Brooke, Lady Detective."

1: The Black Bag Left on a Door-Step
2: The Murder at Troyte's Hill
3: The Redhill Sisterhood
4: A Princess's Vengeance
5: Drawn Daggers
6: The Ghost of Fountain Lane
7: Missing!

The cover is of the first edition. I had to restore the text on the visiting card on the cover, as it was barely legible on the original. Happily, I had the same font on my PC: Edwardian Script.

There is a .prc format edition in the Kindle library, none in the epub library,so I recreated the book with an original cover and in epub, mobi and azw3 formats.
