The Womansleuth Anthology : Contemporary Mystery Stories by Women. They're mysteries by women and about women and I enjoyed them immensely

The Womansleuth Anthology : Contemporary Mystery Stories by Women. They're mysteries by women and about women and I enjoyed them immensely. In the first story, "The Adventure of the Perpetual Husband," Gertrude Stein and Alice Toklas solve the mystery of the Bluebeard of Paris, a real-life case that stumped Parisian Police in 1921. In another story, Christine Craighton overhears two men plotting a murder. She attempt to foil their plot, but it's hard to do without knowing who the intended victim is. In still another story, housekeeper Anna's wealthy boss is murdered and she becomes his avenger.

Fifteen original stories by (mostly) lesser talents, the exceptions being Edie Ramer, who weighs in. .Also on hand are previous Womansleuth authors Helen and Lori Carpenter (septuagenarian Emily Twiggs again tweaking her nephew); Rose Million Healey (poisoned chocolates); Nancy R. Herndon (a rigged ice-bag); Caroline Stafford (a compliment mistaken for a terrorist's code word); Naomi Strichartz (another long ballet brouhaha); and Linda Wagner (a slight but charming excursion into bigamy). Largely mediocre fare-with a few exceptions.

If you want contemporary in female sleuthing, this is it.
