While doing research for a university paper, I happened to stumble upon a slender little volume that claimed to provide a history of crime fiction which diverges from the classic narrative.

In the opening pages the author explains that, traditionally, philosophers were determined to firmly distinguish science — with its rational, empirical approach to the search for knowledge — from all other intellectual pursuits. Conversely, Ascari uses non-canonical sources to provide a fuller picture of how the aesthetic and ideological make-up of our world was formed. As many 20th century anthologies show, critics of early modernist detective fiction followed a very similar path as the philosophers. They created, and strenuously defended, a strictly demarcated genre.
It was the literature of the riddle, a clear, logical puzzle based on the principle of fair play. The reader is given clues throughout the novel and attempts to solve the mystery before the meticulous, gentlemanly detective.

In his Counter-History, Ascari aims to focus on the origins of crime fiction which appeared long before the likes of Auguste Dupin and Sherlock Holmes. He achieves this by following the formation of detective fiction back to a time before the concept of it even existed. We now have the all-seeing eye of the state as a powerful machine of surveillance, represented by its police officers and public authorities.
