about this item

Hailed as "the father of the scientific detective story," physician R. Austin Freeman tested his fictional ploys through microscopic and chemical analysis. Freeman originated the concept of the inverted mystery, in which the crime and culprit are revealed at the outset; the fascination begins with the entrance of Dr. Thorndyke, who spins a convincing web of evidence from the most minute clues. Eight compelling tales promise to captivate mystery lovers.
