Editorial Reviews

Review

“The execution is flawless. Miss de la Torre has a finely tuned ear for eighteenth-century prose.” —Anthony Boucher, TheNew York Times
 
Praise for the Dr. Sam Johnson Mysteries
“The finest series of historical detective stories ever written.” —Ellery Queen
 

About the Author

Lillian de la Torre (1902–1993) was born in New York City. She received a bachelor’s degree from the College of New Rochelle and master’s degrees from Columbia University and Radcliffe College, and she taught in the English department at Colorado College for twenty-seven years. De la Torre wrote numerous books; short stories for Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine; reviews for the New York Times Book Review; poetry; and plays, including one produced for Alfred Hitchcock’s television series. In her first book, Elizabeth Is Missing (1945), she refuted twelve theories on the disappearance of a maidservant near the Tower of London in 1753, and then offered her own answer. Her series of historical detective stories about Dr. Samuel Johnson and James Boswell comprise her most popular fiction. De la Torre served as the 1979 president of the Mystery Writers of America.
