Concept Note:

The classic detective story (more widely, crime fiction), a popular and populist sub genre of the novel proper, is, quite wrongly, considered one of its youngest branches. In point of fact it is one of its earliest and, historically, one of its most resilient partners. If the novel is roughly 250 years old, the detective story is not very much younger, predating by several decades the modern romance and the spy story, never mind the novel for children or the fantasy novel or modern science fiction. And it has remained relatively – compared to these others – unchanged in its skeletal structure, a structure that is transparently evident: a heinous and unexpected crime, an unknown perpetrator, a group of suspects, ambiguous clues, a detective, a thrilling (often mental) pursuit, and the successful unconcealment of the CRIMINAL(s) and the motive.
