"Her novel Lady Molly of Scotland Yard was the first to feature a female detective as the main character" is not correct. The lady investigates, Patricia Craig and Mary Cadogan, (Oxford 1981) lists several from the 19th century. I've amended it to an early example". Richard Pinch 21:43, 27 August 2006 (UTC)

"left Hungary" and then "lived in Budapest"?[edit]

Something must be wrong here:

Would someone who knows care to add the pronunciation of her name - please? Awien 23:16, 23 August 2007 (UTC)


I moved the following here from the main page: "From a passage in her famed Scarlet Pimpernel it is apparent that she was a virulent anti-semite."

I do not think this can be left in without some sort of citation. I will alert those at Antisemitism. --Thehalfone (talk) 15:18, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Agree with removal as I said there. --BozMo talk 15:48, 11 April 2008 (UTC)
Reverted - tag with a citation needed tag. Have you read the book? Albatross2147 (talk) 11:50, 12 April 2008 (UTC)
Of course I have read the book. Using a stereotype prevalent at the time doesn't make you an antisemite but it might make you thoughtless. Anyway your OR judgement on the passage is OR you need to find a notable commentator who asserts AS--BozMo talk 06:11, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

Removed Spoiler[edit]

I have just started reading the Scarlet Pimpernel and was interested in the author. I did not want to learn the identity of the SP via Wikipedia rather than through the joy of reading. I have removed the reference so others are not disappointed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:08, 20 November 2012 (UTC)

I reverted your edit per WP:SPOILER. This is an encyclopedia, and encyclopedias will have spoilers by their very nature. Wyatt Riot (talk) 05:57, 21 November 2012 (UTC)
It can also be argued that 'decades after the novels were published' people are likely to have some idea that 'the given hero or chief narrator character' is likely to be the person using the 'masquerading name' (as a generic title). Jackiespeel (talk) 18:21, 14 October 2013 (UTC)

Baroness O's court case[edit]

In The Times 26 MArch 1908 Baroness Orczy and Mr Montagu thank those who have supported them in the recent court case decided against them. To what does this refer? Jackiespeel (talk) 17:24, 14 October 2013 (UTC)
