|Description:||Madame Rosika Storey is a beautiful detecative who solves four cases for you in a manner most effecative, arriving at conclusions by processes subliminal, since intuition is her guide in locating the criminal. And since her intuition is so perfectly reliable, and backed up by ingenious proof whose force is undeniable—all of which of course is written in a manner most enj’yable—we’re sure that you’ll agree no crook could ever catch Rosika out, and if you ever need a dick we hope that you will seek her out.
