'A new biography, The Real Sherlock Holmes, by the historian Angela Buckley, highlights striking similarities between the fictional detective and Jerome Caminada, a police constable in Manchester who gained national fame in the 19th century for his crime solving.';;The Times;;'He was a master of disguise, an expert in deduction and spent decades in hot pursuit of his nemesis. Biographer Angela Buckley commemorates 100 years since the death of Jerome Caminada, the original great detective.';;Sunday Express;;This is a compelling read - a vibrant account of an extraordinary man, written with a verve that brings nineteenth century to life in all its grimy detail. Buckley claims that Inspector Caminada deserves to be as well-known as Sherlock Holmes, and this book goes a long way to achieving that aim.;;Dr Nick Barratt
