About this product
- DescriptionLady Molly Robertson-Kirk's fiancee is framed for murder and sent to prison. This is the trigger that turns her into one of the best detectives at Scotland Yard. Whilst solving cases, utilising brain power rather than brawn, she constantly keeps an eye out for clues that will enable her to undo the injustice. This character was ground breaking when introduced and even today presents a model female succeeding in a still largely male dominated world.
- Author BiographyBaroness Orczy was born in Hungary in 1865, the daughter of Baron Felix Orczy, a landed aristocrat and well-known composer and conductor. Orczy moved with her parents from Budapest to Brussels and Paris, where she was educated. She studied art in London and exhibited work in the Royal Academy. She married Montagu Barstow and together they worked as illustrators and jointly published an edition of Hungarian folk tales. Orczy became famous in 1905 with the publication of The Scarlet Pimpernel (originally a play co-written with her husband). Its background was the French Revolution and its swashbuckling hero, Sir Percy Blakeney, was to prove immensely popular. Sequel books followed and film and TV versions were later made. Orczy also wrote detective stories which still prove popular and are equally acclaimed within this genre. She died in 1947.
