Interesting and entertaining. ( )
  Coach_of_Alva | Aug 28, 2011 |
A curious early example of the crime novel (from 1888), a thriller rather than a whodunnit mystery, which follows suburban Scotland Yard detective Byde in a diamond robbery case. Not always coherent (the ending is particularly messy) but quite fun in parts. The relationship between inspector Byde and his old enemy, a crook who calls himself a Vicomte and lives exiled in France is well drawn and quite funny. Byde, like Holmes, has a logical mind and fondness for pipes, although he is a suburban husband rather an sybarite bachelor. ( )
