Baroness Orczy (1865-1947) was a Hungarian-born British author, best known for her Scarlet Pimpernel novels. Her Teahouse Detective, who features in The Old Man in the Corner, was one of the first fictional sleuths created in response to the Sherlock Holmes stories' huge success. Initially serialised in magazines, the stories in this collection were first published in book form in 1908 and have since been adapted for radio, television and film.

Reviews for Unravelled Knots: The Teahouse Detective

The first and greatest armchair detective. -- Ellery Queen A literary tour-de-force. -- E.F. Beiler Simple but effective... cleverly contrived. -- Daily Mail One of the only rivals to Sherlock Holmes who can stand comparison... Will delight fans of cosy crime and the golden heyday of British crime writing. -- New Books Magazine I just wanted to snuggle up in a blanket and read these mysteries, trying to guess the end... I can't recommend them enough. -- Umut Reviews
