This month we’re discussing The Notting Hill Mystery by Charles Felix. This story is related by insurance investigator Ralph Henderson, who is building a case against the sinister Baron ‘R’, suspected of murdering his wife. Henderson descends into a maze of intrigue including a diabolical mesmerist, kidnapping by gypsies, slow-poisoners, a rich uncle’s will, and three murders. Ahead of its time, this novel featured crime scene maps, chemical analysis reports, and other features which would not become common in detective stories until the 1920’s.
WhoDunnits is a discussion group devoted to mysteries that follows a yearlong program of books and movies around a single topic. This year it’s Sherlock Holmes’s big brothers — who were the authors who created the detective genre before Conan Doyle came along?
