Description

Publication Date: 31 December 2013
Daughter of a detective, Ethel King takes up her father's career in order to avenge his death, as well as that of her fianc , both brought down the same day by an assassin's bullet. King, like Miss Boston and Therese Arnaud, is an extraordinary woman, well ahead of her time. Although she practices a masculine profession, she is seductive and charming, moves comfortably in high society, and dresses elegantly. These characteristics hide her incisiveness, daring, strength, and accuracy with a gun. She solves cases involving murders, kidnappings, forgeries and extortions. She brings the guilty to justice, earns a satisfactory living and leads a comfortable life in Garden Street, Philadelphia. There were only two women sleuths in French popular literature before the mid-20th century. The first, Miss Boston, was created by Antonin Reschal and appeared in 1908-1909. Jean Petithuguenin (1878-1939) wrote the second, Ethel King, shortly thereafter (1911-1914). This professor at the Faculty of Sciences was the official translator of the Nick Carter series. Ethel King ran for more than 100 bi-weekly issues in France, then was continued in Germany by other authors.
