    'This incredible writer had been largely forgotten and was unknown as a person until Lucy Sussex took up her cause and went in search of her life.

    The three 'Murder Mysteries' here published, are examples of Mary Fortune's great skill in writing 'detective fiction' at this early period when the genre was in the beginning stages of a now popular form of fiction. The three stories are introduced by Lucy Sussex.' (Publisher's blurb)
