    Dickens was a pioneer of detective fiction, basing stories on his own observations, as a solicitor's clerk, of the fledgling police detective force and the courts in the mid-19th century. Edited, with an introduction by Peter Haining, this selection of 12 stories by Dickens begins with his 'first serious detective', Mr Nadgett from Martin Chuzzlewit, and ends with an essay, 'The Edwin Drood Syndicate' by MR James.
