Summary
"This volume surveys the first fifty years of the detective story in nineteenth-century America and England, examining not only major works, but also the lesser known--including contemporary pseudo-biographies, magazines, story papers, and newspapers--recently accessible through new media. By rewriting the history of the mystery genre, this study opens up new avenues for literary exploration"--Provided by publisher
