    Good grief -- this book might possibly win the award for most convoluted murder mystery I've ever read, but it's definitely and seriously fun. It's definitely got a thin plot, but it rates high on my enjoyment-o-meter because of its diabolical craziness and downright crazy story elements. First serialized in 1862/1863 in the magazine Once A Week, this book was quite popular with readers. According to Julian Symons in his Bloody Murder, the book was very likely an attempt to "repeat the success o [...]

    Before Émile Gaboriau’s L'affaire Lerouge (1866), Wilkie Collins’ The Moonstone (1868), or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s A Study in Scarlet (1886), there was The Notting Hill Mystery. Written under the pen name Charles Felix (now believed to be Charles Warren Adams) and first serialized in 1862 in a magazine, it became the first detective novel when it was published in one volume in 1865.Before I got an ARC of this book from NetGalley, I had heard of neither the author nor the novel. The Notti [...]

    The Premise:The Notting Hill Mystery is, according to the introduction, either the first true detective story or among the first true detective stories, though it departs a little from the type by featuring not a police or private detective, but an insurance investigator, and by presenting all the gathered evidence without presenting the investigation by which the evidence was acquired.Baron R- has recently insured his wife for a startling sum.

  • Frances Brody says:

    This story was first published in 1862 and 1863 as a magazine serial, giving the author's name as Charles Felix. The book caught my eye in the library because of the line under the title claiming it to be 'The First Detective Novel'. The story is told by an insurance investigator who is reporting to several companies. With each company, Baron R insured his wife's life for a considerable sum. The investigator builds a case against the baron, whom he suspects of murdering his wife.The story-tellin [...]

    Anyone interested in the roots of the Detective Mystery genre, as I am, will want to read The Notting Hill Mystery (1862). There are reasons to call it, as many have, the first detective story. There is also controversy. Traditionally, Edgar Allan Poe is the granddaddy of the detective story: Murders in the Rue Morgue (1841), and Wilkie Collins is the inventor of the mystery novel: Woman in White (1859) and Moonstone (1968). Where does Charles Warren Adams fit in?That is basically the question t [...]

  • Judy Lesley says:

    I thought this was a wonderful book but that is probably because I am a fan of the older mysteries and enjoy seeing how authors approached the genre in its young days. In this case, not just an infant but practically it's birth day. You might appreciate this novel more if you forget about it being billed as a detective novel because it definitely is not that. Instead you have an investigation presented from the point of view of an investigator for an insurance company into the death of someone t [...]

  • Christie says:

    A fun read, but definitely NOT the first detective novel. "The Notting Hill Mystery" is sort of like Law & Order for the Victorian period: heavy emphasis on compiled evidence, interviews, deposition, etc. We do not know the detective at all as a person, and we do not follow in his detective work. If compiled evidence + conclusions about a crime = a detective novel, then Collins' Woman in White fits the bill and came earlier (in 1859). To me, though, a detective novel needs a detective -- eit [...]

  • Lesley~aka Ella's Gran says:

    A good example of procedural investigation presented to the reader in epistolary style. The language was typically wordy and appropriate to the Victorian era it is set in. While much of the story was quite repetitive - gather statements, compare, report evidence - this is how a case is built, and even though the culprit was reasonably clear from the beginning, I did enjoy reading The Notting Hill Mystery.

  • Tasha says:

    Interesting. King of a weird book.

  • Leslie says:

    2½ stars. Interesting concept but I found the style unappealing especially in the beginning. The exposition at the end also seemed to go on a tad too long as well.

  • Deanne says:

    Rather far fetched in places, you maybe required to suspend your disbelief, fun overall.

  • Nancy says:

    The Notting Hill Mystery by Charles Warren Adams is purportedly the first full-length modern English-language Detective Novel, serialized in 1862-3 and published in 1865. It predates Wilkie Collin's The Moonstone, which was serialized in 1868. Poison Pen Press's new edition of The Notting Hill Mystery includes an introduction tracing the history of the Detective genre, establishing Adam's novel's place in the genre.Adams wrote under the name of Charles Felix, and had published an earlier crime n [...]

  • Sue says:

    This is apparently the first detective story. Well it was a hard act to follow!It is set out as a report on an insurance case, with letters, diary entries, witness statements and so on forming the bulk of the evidence. A woman has died, having been insured for £25k by her husband. Was it natural causes? Or murder? The evidence is drawn together by the narrator, who also suggests the conclusion at the end. Now, you might think that, with a set up like that, the conclusion would be quite predicta [...]

  • Brad McKenna says:

    Yet another book that claims to be the first “Detective Novel” While it predates L'affaire Lerouge and The Moonstone by a couple of years, it wasn’t a traditional novel. It was more in line with Dracula, where it presents letters and reports and interviews as clues to a mystery. Plus, the “Detective” is an insurance agent investigating insurance fraud. Ok, those caveats aside, it was actually impressive since it had no predecessor from which to draw. The mystery is related to mesmerism [...]

  • Meredith says:

    Not sure what to make of this really. The writing and layout are good. The idea of twins being physically connected, nervously, isn't completely impossible to buy into for the story, but the central idea, as it turns out to be, that the villain hypnotised his wife into drinking poison is not only distasteful but illogical. It's the thing that catches him out, that she is seen leaving her room and descending to the laboratory to drink it, while he looks on unconcernedly. Surely he could have just [...]

  • Sara Eames says:

    This is the first detective story written and, although it contains many elements that are recognisable in modern-day mysteries, it is definitely of its time. The prose is quite dry in parts and the story does get bogged down in somewhat unnecessary detail - but it is still a good read. The characters are fairly well-written but the main narrator is very dull at times. However, you can see the makings of the modern-day detective novel within these pages. So, not a bad read.

  • Sarah says:

    A very surprising read. The story is pretty much what one would expect of a Victorian detective or sensation novel, slightly convoluted and full of unlikely turns, but I found the way it was presented really intriguing. You'll be presented with cross-referenced witness statements, footnotes, printed copies of "original documents" and a map of the crime scene, all narrative techniques that become popular within this genre only much much later.

  • Marie (UK) says:

    Oh god this went on forever or so it seemed. I am just glad detective stories have improved if this was the tenor of the original. Information overload repeated again and again the solution so signposted I really had to struggle to complete this.

    This story was so pedantic and dry that try as I might I could not appreciate it.

  • Sallee says:

    A Victorian mystery written in 1865 that takes close attention in reading. Children stolen by the gypsies, poison and mesmerism make for a tale with twists and turns.

    Buku yang diterbitkan tahun 1863 ini konon adalah novel detektif yang pertama di dunia. Pertama kali beredar sebagai kisah bersambung 8 seri di sebuah majalah mingguan Once a Week, dan bagian pertamanya muncul pada 29 November 1862. Nama pengarangnya - Charles Felix - sangat misterius, karena merupakan sebuah nama pena dari orang yang dirahasiakan oleh pihak penerbit. Berdasarkan penelitian akhir, disimpulkan bahwa Charles Felix adalah pseudonim dari Charles Warren Adams yang tidak lain adalah p [...]

  • Tim Prasil says:

    The method of murder in this novel depends on taking advantage of a link between twin girls that goes beyond the psychological, beyond even the psychic. As Felix clarifies early in the novel, the twins’ connection is downright physical. One of the case’s witnesses reports that “every little ailment that affects the one [sister] is immediately felt also by the other. . . . I have often heard of the strong physical sympathies between twins, but never met myself with so marked an instance.” [...]
