Fergus Hume was born in England in 1832 His family emigrated to Australia where he became a barrister and aspired to be a writer His early efforts were met with complete disinterest and so unwilling to admit defeat he asked a local bookseller what type of book was most popular The answer was detective novels and so Hume bought and studied all of the works of the popular crime writer Emile Gaboriau that the bookstore had to offerThe result was The Mystery of a Hansom Cab the first of some 130 books that the author would publish between 1886 and his death in 1932 That first book though was his only success And it was a huge success uite probably the best selling detective story of the eighteenth century
