There's a nice spread of stories, although it's maybe a touch surprising that three of them are second contributions from authors featured earlier in the book. In two of those cases, Greene takes the opportunity to feature a different detective protagonist, so I guess it all works ou. If I'm honest, the book starts slow.

"The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes" is now a catch-phrase for the adventures of other sleuths in the same time-period as Sherlock Holmes. I bought another copy because I wore the first one out - my first had the cover as shown, the second (which arrived in excellent shape!) had a composite cover featuring the actors of the series as it appeared on BBC TV. But do I like it? Hugh Greene did an awesome selection job - asking me to rate this is like asking me how I like the Bible. There is absolutely no comparison to anything else!

This collection by Hugh Greene shows that there were mytery writers of the period in other countries who also had talent in suspense and twisting tales.

This book is a great overview of mystery writers who were around at the same time as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

The early detective stories in Cosmopolitan Crimes: Foreign Rivals of Sherlock Holmes introduce some of his more accomplished foreign contemporaries. These fictional detectives pursued their business in France, Switzerland, South Africa, Belgium, United States, Denmark, Austria, and Canada. Shockingly, one French investigator even had the audacity to work in London.

Hugh Greene compiled these mysteries, all written between 1891, the year Holmes first appeared in the Strand Magazine, and the outbreak of war in 1914.

My favorites were the seven clever, amusing stories by Grant Allen - 2, Robert Barr - 1, Jacques Futrelle - 2, and Maurice Leblanc - 2. I have occasionally encountered Futrelle's quirky genius, oddly called the Thinking Machine, and Leblanc's brilliant (and unscrupulous) Arsene Lupin, but Allen's Sir Charles Vandrift and his nemesis Colonel Clay were entirely new to me. Also new was Robert Barr's creation, Monsieur Valmont, the audacious investigator that I mentioned earlier.

Two stories were translated into English for this collection: the delightful Danish tale, A Sensible Course of Action by Baron Palle Rosenkrantz, and a German mystery, Anonymous Letters by Balduin Groller. While not my favorite, The Murder at the Duck Club wins the award for most unexpected investigator, November Joe, a Canadian backwoodsman.

The thirteen stories include: The Episode of the Mexican Seer and The Episode of the Diamond Links (Grant Allen), Five Hundred Carats (George Griffith), A Bracelet at Bruges (Arnold Bennett), The Absent-Minded Coterie (Robert Barr), The Problem of Cell 13 and The Superfluous Finger (Jacques Futrelle), Arsene Lupin in Prison and The Red Silk Scarf (Maurice Leblanc), A Sensible Course of Action (Baron Palle Rosenkrantz), Anonymous Letters (Balduin Groller), The Secret of the Magnifique (E. Phillips Oppenheim), and The Murder at the Duck Club (H. Hesketh Prichard).

This collection is the second of three companion volumes. Greene's first collection, titled The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes (Penguin Books, 1971), includes only detectives that have identifiable addresses in the London, not unlike No. 221b Baker Street. I have yet to read the third collection, The Further Rivals of Sherlock Holmes (Penguin Books, 1973).

A rose by any name: For those searching for a copy of Cosmopolitan Crimes: Foreign Rivals of Sherlock Holmes it might help to know that it was also published under another title, More Rivals of Sherlock Holmes: Cosmopolitan Crimes, in 1971 in Great Britain.

Sherlock Holmes was not the only detective at work in late Victorian England. Others, some honest, some untrustworthy, all highly capable, were at work all over England. This book contains short stories featuring several of those sleuths.

I always enjoyed Agatha Christie's book Partners in Crime. Tommy and Tuppence Beresford set up a small detective agency in the hopes of tracking down a master criminal. In part of the book, they decide to emulate some other fictional detectives. I remember reading the book and wondering who they were talking sometimes. This little collection features a few of the people they copied.

Lady Molly of Scotland Yard, as she is called, although there is no official title given, is the only woman in the book. Her case, I thought, was a rather easy one. The rest of the sleuths include the Old Man in the Corner with his piece of string, Dr. Thorndike, Romney Pringle - one of the few to appear twice in the book, Duckworth Drew of the Secret Service, and several others. Some I had never heard of before, but a few of the stories, like the one with Martin Hewett chasing down a missing bank clerk and some stolen cash, I had read before. I enjoyed all the stories. The editor picked out a great variety and I would love to read another such collection. Recommended for fans of historical mysteries, espionage, or the short story.
