I read the DOVER books as soon as they were published. Wonderful series!

BV Lawson

And the good news is you can find most of them in their re-issued paperback formats that publishers like Countryman Press and Foul Play Press came out with in the late 1980s and into the 90s. I haven't read any of the short stories -- I'll have to check the local library for those.

Patti Abbott

I also enjoyed her books.

BV Lawson

I have to admit I haven't read any Porter books featuring her spy hero or the Hon Con Ethel Morrison Burke, but I understand that most experts feel the Dover books were her best.

Martin Edwards

Dover One is terrific, and so are some of the short stories. I haven't read the non Dover books, though.
