Similarly influenced by Gaboriau's bestselling stories, Hume published his novel himself after numerous rejections (not, perhaps, without a hint of imperialist inverted snobbery - as Julian Symons notes, Australian publishers turned down the book in the belief that 'no Colonial could write anything worth reading' (60)).

In the 2000s, the TV show Lost offered cliffhangers, tragic plot twists, and a quest to return home, just as Homer’s Odyssey had done thousands of years before. This action might not be possible to undo. Supporting cast members all come with baggage, so need to be chosen carefully (Hallie Ephron). If I want mystery, thrills, suspense, I sure as hell won't pick up a book whose author seems determined to cram every interesting fact he's ever heard into each book. But the visiting doctor goes on to speak of the recent death of Sir Charles Baskerville.

Part novel of intrigue, part mystery, part love story, The Quiet American remains as powerful today as when it was first written. 10. Both the loss and need for a solution is personal. Like your private eyes hard-boiled as they come? That girl is forever.” A male detective in French’s The Secret Place (2014), after spending a few hours questioning the 16-year-old boarders at a school outside Dublin about a murder, blurts out, “If I’ve learned one thing today, it’s that teenage girls make Moriarty look like a babe in the woods.” (For mystery-story innocents, and non-initiates in the cult of Cumberbatch: That’s Professor Moriarty, the evil genius who is the arch-nemesis of Sherlock Holmes.) The exasperated cop later admits that he can’t quite get a handle on how these girls think. “She was written in a code I couldn’t begin to read,” he says to himself about one of them. “They all were.” But in her amazing, sorrowful book, French manages to crack the code because she was a girl once herself, and like the school’s headmistress, she remembers the key: “Girls like to reveal their secrets, and they like to be secretive.” Men who don’t read these books are missing some crucial information.

NBC: REVOLUTION debuts September 25th at 8pm where it hopes to find that spark that made it an early hit last season before it began to fade.
