The popularity of crime novels has been with us since the Victorian era.
Victorians were well aware of murders thanks to the high profile coverage of Jack the Ripper.
In fact, some of the earliest crime novels were by the Author Wilkie Collins who created the "sensation novels" popular in Victorian England that were the first early versions of the detective Novel.
There is sense of real forboding in good crime novels that makes the dark side of life just outside of sight.
Despair and frustation as Detectives seek and fail to find the secrets that will secure arrest of the murderer.
When will the killer be uncovered?
Perhaps we like crime novels so much because the killer is always uncovered and order is always restored.
So perhaps the Crime Novel is right for the uncertain world we live in. In a world that always seems to get more shocking, isn't order from chaos what we are all looking for?
