The Kidnapping of Madame Storey

by Hulbert Footner

Crime fiction short stories / novellas in which Madame Rosika Storey and her assistant Bella Brickley tackle some difficult cases. I liked Footner's _The Almost Perfect Murder_ better - livelier characters and more interesting plots.

The Almost Perfect Murder

by Hulbert Footner

A collection of crime fiction short stories / novellas featuring Mme. Rosika Storey and her resourceful assistant Bella Brickley. Mme. Storey unravels complex cases with thorough investigation and an understanding of human nature - you won't find any miraculous Holmes-like solutions here. Bella's role is primarily as narrator, but shows she has plenty of brains and courage when sent out to do dangerous research on her own. Highly recommended, 5 stars.

The Bishop's Secret

by Fergus Hume

Dry, boring characters. Uneventful, repetitious plot. Eventually I gave it up. The only reason I stayed with it as long as I did is because I have enjoyed other Hume novels very much.
