I cant find anything by Ethel Lina White (1876-1944) in the catalogue? She wrote The Wheel Spins, which was the basis for Hitchcock's The Lady Vanishes.

Here is a 1907 story by her entitled "The Call of the Tiger". It could become part of a short mystery collection.

A good choice for a short mystery collection. Here is a link to the original in The Strand magazine Sept 1907
