9780712356268: The Notting Hill Mystery (British Library Crime Classics)

The Notting Hill Mystery has been widely described as the first detective novel. The story is told by the insurance investigator Ralph Henderson, who is building a case against the sinister Baron R___, suspected of murdering his wife in order to claim her life insurance. Henderson descends into a maze of intrigue, including a diabolical mesmerist, kidnapping by gypsies, slow-poisoners, a rich uncle's will and three murders.Presented in the form of diary entries, family letters, chemical analysis reports, interviews with witnesses and a crime scene map, the novel displays innovative techniques that would not become common features of detective fiction until the 1920s. This novel launched the British Library Crime Classics series in 2012, and is now reissued with a striking new cover design

About the Author:

Charles Warren Adams was a journalist, traveller, lawyer and sole proprietor of the firm Saunders, Otley & Co, which published Once a Week, the magazine in which The Notting Hill Mystery was first published.

Review:

“The book is both utterly of its time and utterly ahead of it.”

(Paul Collins New York Times Book Review)

“[T]he mystery that started them all is as masterful as anything it inspired.”

(Sandra Dallas Denver Post)

“[T]he way [The Notting Hill Mystery] tells its bizarre tale of murder is astonishingly modern.” (Julia Handford Telegraph)

“Engrossing. . . . The Notting Hill Mystery follow[s] the epistolary tradition of police casebooks popular in the mid-nineteenth century, but in presenting the evidence systematically and showing the working of the detective, Adams hit[s] on something central to the detective mystery: the suspense created by revealing one narrative through another.” (Alice Spawls London Review of Books)
