Loveday Brooke. The Black Bag left on a door-step


This is the first short story in the  Loveday Brooke series.

Loveday Brooke works for the famous detective bureau of Ebenezer Dyer in Lynch Court, Fleet Street. Loveday is a very cool professional, admired by her boss and her plodding male colleagues for her shrewd brain and for having ‘so much common sense that it positively amounts to genius’ .

Loveday Brooke was the first female detective created by a woman, and  the Loveday Brooke stories were written in a very interesting period, feministically speaking. In the Introduction Anja Murez explores some of the literary and feminist themes that are relevant to the popular fiction of the late Victorian era.
