LADY MOLLY OF SCOTLAND YARD  is a collection of short stories about Molly Robertson-Kirk, an early fictional female detective. First published in 1910, Orczy's female detective was the precursor of the lay sleuth who relies on brains rather than brawn. As well as being one of the first novels to feature a female detective as the main character, Orczy's outstandingly successful and brilliant police officer preceded her real-life female counterparts by a decade. Lady Molly, like her fictional contemporaries, most often succeeded because she recognized domestic clues foreign to male experience. Her shocking entry into the male domain of the police is forgivable when it is discovered that her motive is to save her fiancé from a false accusation. Once her superior intuition has triumphed, Lady Molly very properly marries and leaves the force. As narrated by her adoring sidekick, Mary Granard, Lady Molly's adventures are very much of their time but still great fun to read or listen to.
