The author tries to imagine what a detective does in his daily work: mainly suspense. The case works out by itself, indeed, with the detective almost being a bystander, so in the end it comes close to reality. What's interesting if you're not into the included romance is the extensive description of the Chicago World's Fair of 1893.
A bit different than modern novels. Really enjoyable. If you read Sir Arthur Conan Doyle then give this a try!
