The original title of the book: Hunted Down: The Detective Stories of Charles Dickens
CHARLES DICKENS CAN justly be regarded as the founding father of the modern detective story, but his influence on the popularity of the genre and its development has been largely understated by critics of his work and of crime writing. In this book Peter Haining does much to redress the balance, both in his admirable introduction and by his judicious selection from the novels and short stories . . . this collection reaffirms that the influence of Charles Dickens on the development and achievements of detective fiction is unchallengeable.' P.D. James , Times --P.D. James Times'Dickens was fascinated both by crime (especially murder) and the growing skills of the new detective force in tracking it down, and Peter Haining casts his net wide in this collection of stories that embody that fascination. he is justified too in his emphasis on their influence on crime fiction and detective stories of the past century. Graham Storey, Co-Editor of The Letters of Charles Dickens --Graham Storey'A fascinating anthology. His [Dickens's] tone is brisk and the details are unembellished.' Independent on Sunday --Independent on SundayEven with his final novel left incomplete, this collection reaffirms that the influence of Charles Dickens on the development and achievements of detective fiction is unchallengeable.' --P.D. James, The Times'This useful collection includes juvenilia and the more interesting stories from 1850 to 51. These have real sociological significance, the first real appearance in English society of the detective proper.' --The Glasgow Herald --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
