In The Shadow of Agatha Christie

In the Shadow of Agatha Christie

Classic Crime Fiction By Forgotten Female Writers (1850-1917)

Edited By Leslie S. Klinger


I like a well written short story ~ I do. I think more authors should write good short stories. Short stories have a place in the literary world. And! this is a collection of good, well-written short stories that are also mysteries. They’re not all murder mysteries, but they are all mysteries. This book is a collection of sixteen stories written by various authors. I had only heard of one author ~ Baroness Orczy author of The Scarlet Pimpernel ~ but I had heard of a few of the sleuths in the stories.

If you enjoy mysteries and you like a good short story, I recommend this book. It was interesting, unique and sometimes puzzling.
