Emile Gaboriau Is An Important Figure In The History Of Detective Fiction A French Journalist And Novelist, He Created The Roman Policier With A Series Of Books Involving Private Detective Monsieur Lecoq, Who Works Logically Lecoq Was Based On A Real Life Thief Turned Policeman Named Francois Vidocq , Whose Memoirs Mixed Fiction And Fact Gaboriau S Huge Following Was Eclipsed By Arthur Conan Doyle S Sherlock Holmes Interestingly, Holmes May Have Been At Least Partly Based On Another Of Gaboriau S Characters, Consulting Detective Father Tabaret, Whose Methods Monsieur Lecoq Adopts In The First Lecoq Book Classic detective crime fiction In the Sequel to Caught In The Net Please be sure to read Caught in the Net first as this is a direct continuation to that exciting narrative.
