Who made the first detective story?
The earliest story where someone tries to solve a crime, or detect, is in the Thousand Nights and a Night, or the Sheherezade stories of the Arabian Nights, written sometime around the 9th century - the story is called "The Three Apples" and concerns a chest where a dead woman's body is found. There are also many old tales from China (around the time of the Ming Dynasty) about a character named Judge Bao, Judge Di, or Judge Dee, who solves crimes - you can find English translations of some of them in a series by Robert van Gulik. In the European, or Western world, detective fiction is often thought to have begun with Edgar Allen Poe's story "The Murders in the Rue Morgue," in which a character named August Dupin solves crimes - Poe used Dupin in several stories.

The initial symptoms are the same as and indistinguishable frominfluenza and lasts about as long. The virus then hides from theimmune system and in most cases no other symptoms will be seen fora latent period of 5 to 20 years, at which point the immune systembegins to rapidly fail and a wide variety… of opportunisticinfections and cancers appear. During the latent period as there are no symptoms the only way todetect an infection with HIV is with lab tests to antibodies to thevirus. (MORE)

The human fetal heart begins beating about 22-23 days after conception. (Though the heart is not yet fully formed, cardiac muscle contractions have begun.) That's called the 5th week of pregnancy, since it's 5 weeks after the last period. The fetus at this stage is between 2 and 3 mm in size. Someti…mes it's possible to detect the heartbeat, with a Doppler instrument, almost this early, but usually the first such detection is later, around week 10, or at least by week 12. By week 21, the heart can be heard with a standard stethoscope. (MORE)

Sherlock Holmes has been the subject of many well-received mysterynovels. These include A Study in Scarlet, and The Hound of theBaskervilles, amongst others.
Many mystery stories have more than one murder. You can have as many as you'd like. You can even have a "red herring" murder that is committed by someone not the main villain if you want!
At the center of the detective story is the enigma - that is a puzzle that needs to be figured out. Now-a-days they are all about murder but that doesn't have to be the case. Sherlock Holmes certainly prevented more murders than he solved. After the enigma any plot device is 'grist for the mill'.

When we talk about the rules of writing, what we really mean are the compilations of guidelines and advice that are believed to be true based on the opinions and experience of writers, readers, editors, and teachers.. The rules of writing detective stories or any type of writing are opinions based …on what works and what is considered acceptable. Some rules change as culture and usage change. Some rules are so basic that they have been applied since the beginning of story telling.. Writers break rules at their own risk. The risk is losing reader interest and enjoyment of the story. Only skillful writers can bend the rules and still tell a successful story. (MORE)

In the rules for writing a detective story what does it say about a love interest for the Detective?
There are no "Rules for Writing a Detective Story!" Detective stories are just stories. The idea of a detective or detecting consultant was invented by Arthur Conan Doyle with his Sherlock Holmes stories, No, it was invented by Edgar Allan Poe in his three C. Auguste Dupin stories: "The Murder…s in the Rue Morgue," "The Mystery of Marie Roget," and "The Purloined Letter." and the idea became popular with the readers. Nowadays, you can find many different types of mystery and detective stories. Read as many different ones as you can, and you will see different ways that the authors have handled the love interest for their characters. (MORE)
According to our OBGYN, it is rare to be detected even by transvaginal ultrasound before the 6th week. They depend on the size of the yolk sack to determine if the proper growth is occurring. Hope this helps. We were at 5 weeks 2 days and no heart beat was detected. Good luck.
Edgar Allan Poe was the first person to write a modern detectivefiction story. It was called "The Murders in the Rue Morgue." Hefollowed that story with two others called "The Mystery of MarieRoget" and "The Purloined Letter." He would certainly also be thefirst American mystery writer. The mystery …story has been aroundfor centuries, if not millennia, but the modern detective story isPoe's own. While it does not have a detective character, "The GoldBug" is a fourth mystery story written by Poe. (MORE)

Plot! Characters, setting, and research! Look back to our old favorite detective books for ideas and examples, such as Nancy Drew (for girls) and the classic old Hardy Boys (for boys). Look at their plots and endings. Also look at the beginnings. Encyclopedia Brown might help you too! Start the b…ook with a mysterious and scary beginning. Not a boring one. Also, if you already know what the crime and crime starter is then make some puzzles that will lead the main character to the crime starter. It helps for the reader to know what the crime is so they know what characters in your book might have done the crime. Have fun writing! Joyce Carol Oates said it best: "The first sentence can't be written until the final sentence is written." Worry about finishing your story, not about writing the perfect opening sentence! You can change anything you like once you've finished -- go back and think of a great first sentence then, instead of waiting for some magical "first sentence" to fall out of the sky and hit you in the head. Now get off the internet and get back to writing that story! (MORE)

If by frame story you mean a story in which the protagonist is framed and must seek exoneration by finding the real perpetrator, then yes, I suppose it would be a kind of detective fiction.....even if the protagonist is not a detective by trade.
It depends on what sort of story you're telling -- you're the author! Many detective stories have been done in each point of view, so there's no rule about it.
Arsenic.\n. \nIt's occasionally used in real life too. Usually by very stupid people who don't realize how easy it is for a forensic scientist to detect.
First and foremost the detective story must have somebody who detects. Deduces things from collecting clues. After this there is considerable variation: . The who dun it - finding the person who did the deed . They why dun it - discerning the motive . The how dun it - the locked room murd…er . police procedural - leg work . court challenge - proving that what was done was actually a crime worthy of punishment (MORE)

A clue would be anything that indicates some fact about a subject of interest. In a detective story anything could be a clue, as they are usually disguised as something else in order not to appear too obvious. eg. Hastings: Well Poiriot we can discount Madam Summers as a suspect. She was performi…ng with the London National Orchestra on the night of the murder in front of eight hundred people. Poirot: Performing? How Performing? Hastings: The Emperor Concerto. Poirot: Mon Deiu, Hastings! I said how not what. What did she perform? What did she do to perform this performance that eight hundred citizens of London observeded? Hastings: Well I would think that she played the Piano of course. The Emperor Concerto's a piano concerto isn't it? Poirot: The piano! Madam Summers plays the piano? Hastings (oh hastings) have you not observeded that Madam Summers has no fingers on her right hand? Would that not serve as a clue that Madam Summers could not play something as complex as the Emperor Concerto on the piano? Hastings: Oh right. Poirot: No, if Madame Summers played in the orchestra at all she was in the string section - or perhaps percussion. (MORE)
Nothing succeeds like success. If your reading public read something of yours and liked it and want more then you write the same again and hope that they appreciate it just as much. Agatha Christie invented Hercules Poirot and he was the detective that her readers really liked. Unfortunately she …didn't. Was saddened that he was the one they latched unto but kept writing him to please her public. Arther Conan Doyle tried to kill Sherlock Homes off when he got tired of him but had to bring him back to life because of his readers. (MORE)

Macbeth is a very strong character, bold and noble and fearless in battle. Duncan sees this in him when they win the battle and is angry at the thayne of Cawdor and wants him killed as he was a traitor. This gives a strong impression also of him as he is not afraid to have someone executed. There is… also a slightly dark side to Macbeth because it also quotes in the book that he slaughtered everyone in his way of winning the battle. This suggests that he is ruthless and won't let anyone stand in his way. (MORE)

You need to have the whole thing worked out ahead of time -- make sure you know exactly what's happening at all times or the clues will either be too easy or too hard. Here's how most detective stories are laid out: . The crime takes place -- there's usually a little bit of story before, just to …introduce the characters . The detective is hired or starts investigating on their own . There are several suspicious people who might have done the deed . Clues are given one at a time through the story . The detective solves the crime (MORE)
No, it is a character study. Even though there are detectives in the story they do nothing but out-stay their welcome - they do not detect in any meaningful way.
Of course, the Sherlock Holmes stories are the original detective series, so you should read those. As to the rest, it's a matter of opinion. Some people like "hard boiled" mystery detectives like Spenser and Marlowe, and others like "cozy" mysteries like Miss Marple.

Season 12 ended with a girl with a gun shooting people in the squad room, so Det. Stabler shot and killed her. But during the hiatus between season 12 and 13, Christopher Meloni, the actor who plays Elliott Stabler, could not negotiate a new contract for season 13 of SVU. The script handled the si…tuation by saying that Stabler had quit over the shooting incident. Elliott didn't appear, his resignation was discussed by the other characters so we would know why he wasn't there. That's a good sign because they didn't kill him off. It's possible that, if he can negotiate a contract for guest appearances we may see him on the show again. (MORE)
Several objects that we NOW know to be black holes -- beginning with the Milky Way -- have been "detected" for a long time. The first object that was universally accepted as a black hole was an x-ray source in the constellation Cygnus, called Cygnus X-1.

by Khalid Betani A computer virus is a computer program that can replicate itself. The Creeper virus was first detected on ARPANET, the forerunner of the Internet, in the early 1970s. Creeper was an experimental self-replicating program written by Bob Thomas at BBN Technologies in 1971. Cre…eper used the ARPANET to infect DEC PDP-10 computers running the TENEX operating system. Creeper gained access via the ARPANET and copied itself to the remote system where the message, "I'm the creeper, catch me if you can!" was displayed. The Reaper program was created to delete Creeper. (MORE)
