Out Now: The Legendary Women Detectives Edited By Jean Marie Stine


PageTurner Books and DeerStalker Editions is extremely excited to be able to print back into print a great celebration of women detectives with the publication of The Legendary Women Detectives, featuring works by Baroness Orczy, Anna Katharine Green, Arthur B. Reeve, C. L. Pirkis, Valentine's Daphne Wrayne, and Edgar Jepson and Robert Eustace, and edited by our own - and equally legendary -  Jean Marie Stine.
Sherlock Holmes' Female Rivals! This unique collection for connoisseurs of detection done female style brings back six of the greatest fictional women sleuths of the era of gaslights and horseless carriages. Fans of Kinsey Milhone and other contemporary women detectives, as well as of Agatha Christie and Honey West, will love this collection featuring the foremothers of today's fictional female crime-fighters. Long out of print and unobtainable, these celebrated women 'tecs - Baroness Orczy's Lady Molly of Scotland Yard, Anna Katharine Green's Violet Strange, Arthur B. Reeve's Constance Dunlap, C. L. Pirkis' Loveday Brooke, Valentine's Daphne Wrayne, and Edgar Jepson and Robert Eustace's Ruth Kelstern--were once nearly as famous as fictional sleuth of Baker Street himself. Their fame waned in the long decades of the 1930s through the '80s, when female sleuths took a backseat to Sam Spade, Nero Wolfe, and the like. But, they are back to baffle and thrill contemporary readers in The Legendary Women Detectives edited by Jean Marie Stine.
