When her fiancee is falsely accused and the police are unable to find evidence to support his innocence, Lady Molly does the unheard of - she joins the police to improve their methods.

Lady Molly, like her fictional contemporaries, most often succeeded because she recognised domestic clues foreign to male experience. Her entry into the police is motivated by a desire to save her fiancé from a false accusation. Once her superior intuition has triumphed, Lady Molly marries and leaves the force.

This collection of short stories about Molly Robertson-Kirk was written by Baroness Orczy, who is best known as the creator of The Scarlet Pimpernel.

First published in 1910, Orczy's female detective was the precursor of the lay sleuth who relies on brains rather than brawn.
