The book is widely regarded as the precursor of the modern mystery and suspense novels. T. S. Eliot called it 'the first, the longest, and the best of modern English detective novels'. It contains a number of ideas which became common tropes of the genre: a large number of suspects, red herrings, a crime being investigated by talented amateurs who happen to be present when it is committed, and two police officers who exemplify respectively the 'local bungler' and the skilled, professional, Scotland Yard detective.

format will be used as a backbone for future development. More equipment photos, technical information, and contributions of material will be added. My XYL, a former Collins Radio Company (Cedar Rapids) employee
from the good old days, will also be pitching in. Your comments, suggestions, and Collins related contributions are always welcome and will be credited.
