Raye, Cristina. Cristina Raye was created by Beatrice Grimshaw (Helen Pentecost, Simon, Vaiti) and appeared in six stories in The Saturday Evening Post in 1914, beginning with “The Tale of the Celebes Rubber Queen” (Saturday Evening Post, Sept. 26, 1914).

Cristina Raye is a wealthy, beautiful, spirited, and above all intelligent young heiress who decides to spend five years traveling the world before she settles down for good. Two years into her travels, she is in Southeast Asia, where she becomes known to the Malays as the “Kris-Girl,” on account of her being so very clever at cutting knots, solving mysteries, capturing bad men, and helping those who are down on their luck.
