Only the greatest teenage sleuth ever written for an adult audience, conceived by Canadian Harvey O'Higgins. Another Canadian, Hulbert Footner, wrote of Madame Storey, who used her knowledge of women's psychology to solve crimes. In the early years of this century, sleuths created by Canadian mystery writers had as many fans as Holmes did himself. Originally published in books, magazines and anthologies, oftenin serial form, these gems by thirteen Canadians form an intriguing histor ical collection as well as an entertaining read." -- from rear cover.
