      The Further Rivals of Sherlock Holmes was the third of Hugh Greene’s anthologies of Victorian and Edwardian crime stories. This time it’s crime in the countryside. And once more Greene has found some wonderful little stories. There are several women detectives, including M. McD Bodkin Q. C.’s pistol-packing Dora Myrl and Richard Marsh’s Judith Lee, a child who solves a mystery (in The Man Who Cut off My Hair) with her lip-reading skills. Marsh was the author of one of the strangest of Vi [...]

      I particularly liked the story called "The mistery of room 666". It was such a great turn of events.

      Interesting to see the literary competition for Sherlock Holmes. Many of these detectives were interesting and I would like to read more stories of them. Be aware that in some of the stories, the authors use terms for people of color that are very offensive.

Some of the stories' resolutions were a little hard to understand--probably because their meaning/relevance now has changed since they were published in the late 18th-early 19th century. I bought the book at a second-hand place for the vintage-looking cover :p

      A third collection in a series gathering other detectives from the same era as Sherlock Holmes. The earlier collections may be better, but these stories were mediocre. I can understand why these detectives would disappear while Holmes continues to be read.

      Was pretty good. Some stories were well written, some were predictable and felt like they were following step-by-step instructions on mystery writting.

      I enjoyed this, but not as much as Sherlock Holmes.
