The ‘Lost Detectives’ project is devoted to the adaptation and popularisation of forgotten works of nineteenth-century Russian crime fiction. Claire Whitehead (Department of Russian) and author-illustrator Carol Adlam discuss their collaborative work on adapting Semyon Panov’s Three Courts (1876), Nikolai Timofeev’s Notes of an Investigator (1872) and Aleksandr Shkliarevskii’s A Secret Investigation (1881). Their conversation will be accompanied by extracts from an adaptation of Notes of an Investigator imagined as an edition of Radio 4’s Today programme.
