There is, for example, Susan Dare, not only a charming sleuth but a detective-story writer, too. And there is Sally (Sherlock) Holmes Lane who encounters heartwarming romance, fiendish crime and monstrous tragedy. Here, too, you'll find Millicent Bracegirdle, timid, respectable spinster, who spent the night under a strange man's bed in a foreign hotel. There are fourteen more of these lady detectives, in all sizes and shapes and shades of termperament."
