    Author who inspired Agatha Christie

    Keep in mind when this was written, and you will really enjoy this book. The language and mores are of a bygone era, but that is part of what I loved. If you are looking for blood and guts this is not your novel. If you like being transported to another time and place through the vehicle of a mystery -- this is for you.

    Very tame

    Interesting as period pieces, the stories are pretty tame by today's standards. No action and lacking the depth of a Sherlock Holmes story. Although the stories can be interesting, they typically do not provide the reader with clues that would allow you to solve the crime yourself. Not a lot of depth, so listening to the stories back-to-back, they tend to get boring. The narrator does an excellent job of presenting the stories.

    A fun Mystery and dective set in the late 1800's!

    I really liked this book! It is set in the late 1800's and has as the dectective Violet Strange who is a society girl. I enjoyed how she deduced things and also the mystery of her own life of why she was a detective herself. I recommend it! :-)

    I really enjoyed this one!

    This is a series of short stories of the society girl, Violet Strange, who does detective work. The stories are very enjoyable and a bit dated since they take place at the turn of the 19th century. I really enjoyed this series.

    Irritating stories don't correspond to chapters

    chapters bear no relation to the actual short stories which makes it user unfriendly in the extreme
