Emile Gaboriau, a contemporary of Arthur Conan Doyle is considered one of the founders of the "detective novel". If you like the novels of Sherlock Holmes, you will like its French counterpart Mr. Lecocq.

The furniture was knocked about, and a chest of drawers and two large trunks had been forced and broken open.
