Unlike the previous "reviewer," who has obviously not read this book, I have found the Thorndyke series to be excellent, including plot development, the science and character development. Other novelists are better at describing the surroundings and the customs of the times. Freeman was writing more or less contemporaneous to the events, so this is not historical fiction; Anne Perry, C.S. Harris and other modern-day detective novelists do a better job at that. The Thorndyke series is equal to Agatha Christie, George Simenon (Maigret) and Dorothy Sayers, but not to A.C. Doyle's Sherlock Holmes.
