Plots and Counterplots(1976)
More Unknown Thrillers of Louisa May Alcott
A collection of stories by Louisa May Alcott
Alcott had a story recipe that she followed closely for every story: an amazingly beautiful heroine with a dark secret, at least two or three men who fall desperately in love with her (who have their own dark secrets), a few deaths of some supporting characters along the way whom we don't care about, and a conclusion usually finding the heroine being punished in some way (because underneath her beauty, she is a femme fatale).
