The first Crime Novel,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Caleb Williams Or Things as They Are (Kindle Edition)
Often cited as the first Crime novel I can see why. Despite it's age (over 250 years old) it is a fantastic yarn. Written by Mary Shelley's father, I feel that this is a crime (no pun intended) that this book is not celebrated more as a true classic. In many ways many crime novels and films have based themselves upon this, The Fugitive immediately springs to mind to name one. Give it a go, you will not be disappointed.
