In the novel "Beyond the City" the elderly owner of a small cottage settlement in the vicinity of Norwood were quite happy with the first two their tenants — and the doctor Walker with two daughters, and Admiral Denver with his wife and son, neighbors were quiet, respectable and prosperous. But moving to the third cottage Mrs Westmacott, a staunch feminist and fighter for women's rights, stirred the tranquility of the village and has spurred many events that changed the fate of almost all the locals.
"Hilda Wade" — the only detective co-written. Mystery, worthy of the Great Detective from Baker street! Hilda's Wide — a real Sherlock Holmes in a skirt, in love with her young doctor is reminiscent of Dr. Watson. Together they must restore the good name of her father — also a doctor unjustly accused of murder. Will the heroes to expose the criminal genius, for whom the Hippocratic oath is an empty sound, and power extends from the wards of a London hospital to the South African savannas and snow-capped peaks of Tibet?
A collection of short stories "Round the Red Lamp" introduces the reader to various episodes from the life of doctors.
