Hunted down : the detective stories of Charles Dickens by Charles Dickens( Book )

12 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Charles Dickens was a pioneer of detective fiction, and Hunted Down assembles a fascinating selection of his work in which the men of the law make their mark. Their working methods were based on his observations of the fledgling police detective force when he was a solicitor's clerk and reporter and witnessed the workings of police stations and accompanied detectives on their nightly street patrols in London; he also attended magistrates' courts and was present at murder trials and public executions. Out of these observations grew Mr. Nadgett in Martin Chuzzlewit, the first serious detective in an English novel, and Inspector Bucket in Bleak House, who solves the murder of an unscrupulous lawyer. The assorted cast includes an amateur detective, a river policeman and the prototype of all undercover detectives."--BOOK JACKET
