Review

"Stellar. Much more than quaint curiosities, the 16 entries from women crime writers who preceded Christie are enjoyable in their own right. This is a must-have volume for classic crime fans.", Publishers Weekly (starred)

"Klinger, as one of the world’s foremost early crime fiction experts, has selected a wide array of stories by women crime writers in the Anglophone world, taking us through the birth of the genre in the 19th century up to just before WWI.", CrimeReads (Best Anthologies of 2018)

"Klinger the archivist and editor has done the field an invaluable service by excavating so many stories. Shows Victorian women actively working the field long before Miss Marple.", Kirkus Reviews

"Illuminating and entertaining.", Mystery Scene Magazine

"Unreservedly recommended for community libraries and the personal reading lists of dedicated mystery buffs.", Midwest Book Review

"You owe it to yourself to read this collection.  The reader is sure to be amazed, delighted, and entertained from one end of the book to the other. ", The Oklahoman

"A winner for fans of classic mysteries and a complete joy.", Bookreporter

"Beautifully published and full of delights." -- A.J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of 'The Woman in the Window'
