Catherine Louisa Pirkis' novel, 'The Experiences of Loveday Brooke, Lady Detective,' is an early example of detective fiction that predates the famous Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The book follows the adventures of Loveday Brooke, a female detective who uses her wit and intelligence to solve various cases. Pirkis' writing style is engaging and immersive, drawing readers into a world of mystery and intrigue. The novel is a significant contribution to the genre of detective fiction, showcasing a strong and independent female protagonist in a time when such characters were rare. Pirkis' attention to detail and clever plot twists make 'The Experiences of Loveday Brooke, Lady Detective' a compelling read for fans of classic detective stories. Catherine Louisa Pirkis was a British author and feminist who used her writing to challenge traditional gender roles. It is believed that Pirkis drew on her own experiences and observations of society to create the character of Loveday Brooke. Her work reflects her belief in the importance of equality and empowerment for women, making her a pioneer in the portrayal of strong female characters in literature. I highly recommend 'The Experiences of Loveday Brooke, Lady Detective' to readers who enjoy classic detective fiction and are interested in exploring early examples of strong female protagonists. Pirkis' novel is not only entertaining but also provides valuable insight into the social and cultural issues of the time.

    When doubt is cast on a presidential election, it sets off an “intricate, skillfully spun” tale of intrigue in this near-future political thriller (Publishers Weekly). At the dawn of the twenty-first century, the CIA has been disbanded and a secret society has taken hold of powerful positions across Washington. After a long and contentious campaign, President Bedford Lockwood is celebrating his reelection. But the revelry is cut short when it’s discovered that his over-zealous aides may have tampered with the vote. On the eve of the Inauguration, Lockwood’s rival—the archconservative Franklin Mallory—presents evidence of fraud. When Lockwood refuses to take the oath of office, it sets in motion a series of events that may destroy him, his party, and the Constitution. From this catastrophic crisis, acclaimed author and former Washington journalist Charles McCarry weaves a smart, tense, and eerily prescient political thriller.
