Synopsis: This anthology offers readers an exemplary sample of the hundreds of detective stories published in nineteenth century newspapers and magazines. All but two are stories published before 1891, before Sherlock Holmes appeared in America. The stories are categorized according to common motifs, including the largely unexplored field of women in late nineteenth-century detection. Revealing cultural intricacies that other kinds of fiction cannot, the literature presented here provides new insights into the history of the detective story.

About the Author: LeRoy Lad Panek is the award-winning author of a number of books about detective fiction, including The American Police Novel (2003, Edgar Award Finalist). He is an English professor at McDaniel College, and lives in Westminster, Maryland.

Mary M. Bendel-Simso is an associate professor of English at McDaniel College and lives in Westminster, Maryland.
