This volume of 2 Detectives pairs two early lady detectives who showed that intelligence, investigative skills, and courage were t limited to those of the masculine variety. Loveday Brooke's undercover skills allowed her to blend into the background and gather intelligence without tipping off the suspects. She was the consummate professional, much appreciated by her boss, though she didn't always agree with him (and he didn't always understand her methods). These seven stories were published in 1893 and 1894. Lady Molly quickly worked her way to the top of Scotland Yard's female detectives, using her wits and intuition to solve puzzling crimes, and driven by a very personal motivation to solve a murder that had sent the wrong man to prison. These stories were first published in 1910.
