George Locke recorded a copy inscribed by Shiel in 1924, "A trinity here: the first about a father, the second about a son, or scion, the third about a ghostly hole… But there is no detective but THE detective and father of detectives, the 'Dupin' of Poe, of whom this Zaleski is a legitimate son, and the notorious Holmes a bastard son".
