Staff Reading Pick
Here is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.
Book: The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher by Kate Summerscale
Recommended by: Katrina, Library Technical Assistant
In 1860, Jonathan Whicher, one of the original eight Scotland Yard officers, is sent to an English country house to investigate the murder of a child that has stumped the local constabulary. Filled with quotes from contemporary newspapers & journalists, as well as theories from Charles Dickens & Wilkie Collins, The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher provides a detailed & delving look at Victorian society as it became consumed with a gruesome murder and its ensuing investigation. The book also provides insight into the development of the "detective", both in fact & fiction. Many details of the case, and Whicher himself, helped to shape the emerging genre of the detective novel.
