In the early days of criminal investigation, before guilt and innocence were determined by forensic science, there was a detective,” a man of mystery”, with an uncanny ability to read the human character and an unswerving instinct for the truth. In Victorian England, justice depended on The Suspicions of Mr Whicher.
