WOMEN MAKE BETTER SLEUTHS THAN MEN, SAYS AGENCY HEAD

September 2, 2010

Check out this very cool post at Jess Nevins’ blog: an article in a Kansas newspaper from 1921 containing an interview with the female head of a detective agency. She scorns detective stories, but her explanations of why women make better detectives sound a lot like, say, Loveday Brooke, or Lady Molly of Scotland Yard.

  1. Who knew women would be better Dicks haha


  2. Another example is Madame Storey, by Hulbert Footner. She’s pretty annoying!


    • How so?


  3. She knows EVERYTHING. By virtue of being a psychologist, she always figures out what’s going on. However, I did enjoy the mysteries. They are told by her assistant, Bella, rather than by herself.
