Book description: "When her stepfather dies, Miss Lois Cayley finds herself alone in the world with only twopence in her pocket. Undaunted, the intelligent, attractive, and infinitely resourceful young woman decides to set off in search of adventure. Her travels take her from London to Germany, Italy, Egypt, and India, as she faces various challenges and meets an assortment of eccentric characters. But when her true love, Harold Tillington, finds himself accused of forging a will and faces prison, Miss Cayley will need all her ingenuity to investigate the case, solve the mystery, and save Harold from the diabolical plot!

One of the first novels to feature a female detective, Grant Allen's Miss Cayley's Adventures (1899) remains as witty, enjoyable, and engaging today as when first published."

*IMPORTANT NOTES*: As in many older novels, there is racism in this book, including the use of the N word. Racism, and any form of prejudice, was wrong then and it is wrong now. I want to acknowledge this, as it offers an opportunity for us to reflect on how far we have come, and also how far we have yet to go. We read older books knowing this may be a part of the story, without agreeing with it. It's a tricky path to navigate, but I want to make it clear that we use these moments of racism and prejudice to learn from, and know that they are very wrong. Please email me at if you have further insights of how we can handle this while continuing to read older books. Thank you! - Katie
