Fergus Hume's The Mystery of a Hansom Cab on ABC's Book Show.

In its series on Australian classics, the Australian Broadcasting Co.'s Book Show looks at The Mystery of a Hansom Cab (1886) by British-born Fergusson Wright Hume, which, according to Christopher Pittard's Clues 26.1 article, was the sensation of 1887 London—selling more than 30,000 copies in under 6 months. Guests on the program include Clues editorial board member Stephen Knight (Cardiff University) and University of Melbourne's Lucy Sussex, who wrote on Edward Bulwer Lytton in Clues 26.1.
