Lady Molly of Scotland Yard

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Baroness Orczy

Narrated By: Unknown

Publisher: LibriVox

Date: January 2011

Duration: 7 hours 54 minutes


Lady Molly of Scotland Yard is a collection of short stories about Molly Robertson-Kirk, an early fictional female detective. It was written by Baroness Orczy, who is best known as the creator of The Scarlet Pimpernel, but who also invented two immortal turn-of-the-century detectives in The Old Man in the Corner and Lady Molly of Scotland Yard. First published in 1910, Orczy’s female detective was the precursor of the lay sleuth who relies on brains rather than brawn. The book soon became very popular, with three editions appearing in the first year. As well as being one of the first novels to feature a female detective as the main character, Orczy’s outstandingly successful police officer preceded her real life female counterparts by a decade.(Introduction from wikipedia)

    Lady Molly is the female Sherlock, and counterpart to Miss Fischer of Australia. I enjoyed her adventures.

    entertaining and enjoyable narration. short stories, which move along at pace lovely way that it feels like a person you know telling you gossip almost, and I really like the way she constantly refers to of course you remember or you will know that over some not so relevant part of the tale

  • Bettina Trott

    I loved the book. The stories were interesting and the character description very well done. The narrator's accent was neither here nor there which led me to believe it was fitting for the titled people of that era.

  • Blake Aasgaard

    Immensely enjoyable for a ready driving companion, the purpose I'd intended this work to be. Not overly disturbing, it was quiet resolve and satisfaction that were the products I realised during, and after, each pause throughout.
