"The Notting Hill mystery" is a detective novel written by Charles Warren Adams under the pseudonym of Charles Felix in 1863. Having enjoyed some critical success at the time of its publication, it was totally forgotten and then rediscovered in 2012, when the identity of its author was finally uncovered. Preceding works by Wilkie Collins or Émile Gaboriau, "The Notting Hill mystery" is now considered to be the first ever crime novel. This debate about who was first hides the true value of the book. It was astonishingly ahead of its time. It is a crime case presented as a collection of investigative, criminal, forensic documents and multiple depositions. It is also the first example of a “perfect crime” novel as at the end of the book the investigator has probably understood the truth but has no evidence to support his conclusions.

And last November I investigated my first murder . . .' Alex Tanner is always on the lookout for work - mortgages on flats in Notting Hill don't come cheap after all and she only has herself to rely on. So when TV producer Barty O'Neill mentions a particularly juicy assignment for his latest documentary she jumps at the chance. Barty sends Alex to investigate the shooting of Lord Sherman, who was a member of London’s high society in the 50s, and whose case remains unresolved. Alex hopes that a governess of the family, Miss Sarah Potter, will help untangle the truth, or will she lead Alex down another hidden path of the family’s privileged history?

"Oh, auntie, auntie, what shall I do? For three nights I have not closed my eyes, and I would not write even to you, auntie dear, because I kept hoping that, after all, things might come right, and he would come back again. Oh, how I have listened to every sound, and watched the road till my poor eyes ache! And now this is the fourth day since he went away, and, oh, auntie, I am so frightened, for I am sure he is gone after that dreadful man, and, oh, if he should meet him, I know something terrible will happen, for you can't tell how he looked, poor Edward, I mean, when he went away. But, indeed, auntie, you must not be angry with him, for I know it was all my own fault, for I ought to have told him everything long ago, though indeed, indeed, I never cared for him, and I do love dear Edward so dearly. I was afraid....
