The Biter Bit

The Biter Bit (1858)

Wilkie Collins

Very funny mystery in which a pompous, irrepressible young police officer bungles his first case, a simple household burglary. Collins wittily lets the policeman hang himself, telling the tale primarily in the form of the cop’s field reports to his superior officer.
