‘No-one has approached the vast, continuing corpus of detective fiction in quite this way before.’ Financial Times
What is it that has always made the detective such a popular figure in fiction? Why are we always so seduced by the search to discover ‘whodunit’? And how far back does this fascination go?
Following the trail of the detective – from Poe’s Chevalier Dupin to the time of this book’s first publication in 1989 – T J Binyon’s brilliant history explores one of fiction’s most enduring characters, in all its many guises. Murder Will Out is an essential guide for anyone who has ever been gripped by a good crime novel and wants to investigate further.
