    The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher or The Murder at Road Hill House by Kate Summerscale

What a good book this was.  If you want to follow the development and early days of detective story writing this is the book for you.  This book is about a murder case which happened in 1860 in England.  The case was most bizarre and was never solved to the 100% satisfaction of all concerned.  But I leave it to you to read the details.  I found it absolutely fascinating.
