We Must Have Certainty from the Author: J. Kenneth Van Dover. We Must Have Certainty surveys 160 years of the development of the genre (1841-2001) and then suggests some ways in which the genre and its development reflect some of the issues that have concerned writers and readers in America and Europe during that period. In particular, it examines the special nature of the world in which the fictional detective operates: a world constructed always to yield certain truth to the person who can read its signs correctly. The nature of these signs evolves with the genre, but while the surfaces of the world may change (from, for example, the Arcadian rhythms of a country house to the cacophony of the mean streets), what really happens in the world is always detectable.

A Silent Witness A Dr Thorndyke Mystery from the Author: R. Austin Freeman. This early work by Richard Austin Freeman was originally published in 1914 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introduction. 'A Silent Witness' is one of Freeman's novels of crime and mystery. The first story featuring his well-known protagonist Dr. Thorndyke – a medico-legal forensic investigator – was published in 1907, and although Freeman's early works were seen as simple homages to his contemporary, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, he quickly developed his own style: The 'inverted detective story', in which the identity of the criminal is shown from the beginning, and the story then describes the detective's attempt to solve the mystery.
