内容: To see what we have got to see --
The horror and amazement --
Shall not God find this out? --
A man of mystery --
Every clue seems cut off --
Something in her dark cheek --
Shape-shifters --
All tight shut up --
I know you --
To look at a star by glances --
What games goes on --
Detective-fever --
A general putting of this and that together by the wrong end --
Women! Hold your tongues! --
Like a crave --
Better she be mad --
My love turned --
Surely our real detective liveth --
Fairy-lands of fact --
The music of the scythe on the lawn outside.

摘要:

In June of 1860 three-year-old Saville Kent was found at the bottom of an outdoor privy with his throat slit. The 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, Jonathan Whicher of Scotland Yard. Whicher quickly believed the unbelievable--that someone within the family was responsible for the murder of young Saville Kent. Without sufficient evidence or a confession, though, his case was circumstantial and he returned to London a broken man. Though he would be vindicated five years later, the real legacy of Jonathan Whicher lives on in fiction: the tough, quirky, knowing, and all-seeing detective that we know and love today ... from the cryptic Sgt. Cuff in Wilkie Collins's The Moonstone to Dashiell Hammett's Sam Spade.--From publisher description.
