Sherlock Holmes was the most famous detective to stride through the pages of late Victorian and Edwardian fiction, but he was not the only one. He had plenty of rivals. Some of the most memorable of these were women: they were Sherlock's Sisters. This exciting, unusual anthology gathers together 15 stories written by women or featuring female detectives. They include Dorcas Dene, Lady Molly of Scotland Yard, Hagar the Gypsy, Judith Lee and Madelyn Mack. Editor Nick Rennison has already compiled several highly entertaining collections of stories from what he considers a golden age of crime fiction, including The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes, More Rivals of Sherlock Holmes and Supernatural Sherlocks. His latest anthology turns the spotlight on the women detectives who could more than match their male counterparts. 'Writer, editor and Victorian specialist Nick Rennison has produced another fascinating anthology of stories from "the golden age of gaslight crime. - Shots Mag on More Rivals 'This collection...is a delight for fans of the history of crime writing and lovers of the short story mystery format. I can't think of a more pleasant afternoon's reading than this.' - NB Magazine 'There are some very good stories here, some actually feel like they are adopting the Holmesian ethos; the use of observation and reasoning, (often traduced to deductive reasoning), the apparently inexplicable mystery and the plodding dullness of the police. Others are simply female detectives with their own way of doing things, none the worse for that. These stories make for a relaxing afternoon's reading and are a fascinating window on their times' - Crime Time
