Just about the earliest lady detective, in the wake of the Sherlock Holmes tidal wave. Seven short stories of detection, in which Loveday Brooke is an operative of a London private detective agency.

Catherine Louisa Pirkis 1839-1910. The full, long, title is: "The Experiences of Loveday Brooke, Lady Detective."

1: The Black Bag Left on a Door-Step
2: The Murder at Troyte's Hill
3: The Redhill Sisterhood
4: A Princess's Vengeance
5: Drawn Daggers
6: The Ghost of Fountain Lane
7: Missing!

The cover is of the first edition. I had to restore the text on the visiting card on the cover, as it was barely legible on the original. Happily, I had the same font on my PC: Edwardian Script.

There is a .prc format edition in the Kindle library, none in the epub library,so I recreated the book with an original cover and in epub, mobi and azw3 formats.
