About the Author
Baroness Orczy was born in Hungary in 1865, the daughter of Baron Felix Orczy, a landed aristocrat and well-known composer and conductor. Orczy moved with her parents from Budapest to Brussels and Paris, where she was educated. She studied art in London and exhibited work in the Royal Academy. She married Montagu Barstow and together they worked as illustrators and jointly published an edition of Hungarian folk tales. Orczy became famous in 1905 with the publication of The Scarlet Pimpernel (originally a play co-written with her husband). Its background was the French Revolution and its swashbuckling hero, Sir Percy Blakeney, was to prove immensely popular. Sequel books followed and film and TV versions were later made. Orczy also wrote detective stories which still prove popular and are equally acclaimed within this genre. She died in 1947. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Excellent short storiesReviewed in the United States on 30 August 2012
Collection of short stories about the exploits of the Pimpernel and his league. Lots of disguises and narrow escapes. I particularly enjoyed "Fie, Sir Percy!" The prince of dandies falls asleep during a recitation of the pimpernel's adventures, bringing the playful wrath of the ton down on his immaculate head. Also includes: 'The Stranger from Paris' a time when the band uses a novel way to trick a whole town, 'Fly-By-Night' where Marguerite is not as useless as usual, 'In the Tiger's Den' where he is captured and others.
