The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher
The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher | Bestsellers - Books USA Press
1 post | 1 read
The national bestseller, now in paperback. In June of 1860 three-year-old Saville Kent was found at the bottom of an outdoor privy with his throat slit. T he crime horrified all England and led to a national obsession with detection, ironically destroying, in the process, the career of perhaps the greatest detective in the land. I nspector Jonathan Whichers real legacy, however, lives on in fiction: the tough, quirky, all-knowing and all-seeing detective that we know and love todayfrom the cryptic Sgt. Cuff in Wilkie Collinss The Moonstone to Dashiell Hammetts Sam Spade. The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher reads like the best of Victorian thrillers, and has been nominated for the Samuel Johnson Prize in London.
