Book Synopsis

Mary Helena Fortune (circa 1833 - circa 1910) was an Australian mystery, suspense, and horror writer who wrote under the pseudonyms "Waif Wander" and "W.W." She was one of the earliest female detective writers in the world (if not the earliest). She was also probably the first to write from the viewpoint of the detective. A prolific storyteller, she wrote at least 500 detective stories over 40 years, many featuring Detective Mark Sinclair. This volume reprints 15 of her classic stories (many for the first time) and is the largest collection of her work ever published.

Included are:

  • THE RED ROOM
  • THE SPIRITS OF THE TOWER
  • THE GREENSTONE GRAVES
  • AT "THE RANGES"
  • ILLILLIWA
  • MY LODGER
  • HEATHERVILLE
  • THE WHITE MANIAC; A DOCTOR'S TALE
  • THE SECRET OF THE KEYS
  • TRACES OF CRIME
  • THE QUEEN OF COOINDA
  • THE BRAND OF CAIN
  • THE ST. JOHNS
  • AT THE NEW YEAR
  • THE MURDER AT OZER'S
