This chapter focuses on John Faunce, a ‘Holmesian’ inspector, as well as his ‘normalising’ detections in His Darling Sin and Rough Justice, and shows Braddon’s transition from a mid-century sensation novelist to an author of traditional detective fictions. It also stresses that this transition does not imply a complete break with the sensation novel and the dismissal of the Lady Audley paradigm.

Keywords:   John Faunce, Holmesian inspector, normalising detections, sensation novelist, detective fictions, Lady Audley paradigm
