This novel is, arguably, the first crime novel and inspired an entire genre, character tropes, and basic plotting elements. From the 'detective craze' to the 'innocent beauty' this novel has it all.
It is performed well and maintains interest even if the characters are a bit one dimensional and the plot lags at times.
A must read for crime fiction buffs.

One of the first detective novels - and a very interesting look into Victorian life for a certain segment of the society at the time.
