The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher: A Shocking Murder and the Undoing of a Great Victorian Detective

The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher: A Shocking Murder and the Undoing of a Great Victorian Detective - Kate Summerscale This was fascinating, but also really dry. It was as much a commentary on how this murder shaped the world of detective novels as it was on the murder itself. At times I found myself skipping whole paragraphs just to get back to the murder account.

It was also dry because it was written as a step by step, day by day accounting of the investigation. It was not in a story format at all so it was hard to become involved with the characters.
