    Dr Thorndike is Brillant

    Alhough this book has a huge number of novels and short stories, it isn't complete. The Blue Scarab is missing. All are fun.

    EXCELLENT MYSTERIES!

    I have read about half of the novels and short stories in this anthology and have really enjoyed them! This is an excellent collection of R Austin Freeman's work. This Halcyon edition has a table of contents with links to all the novels and short stories, which really is useful if you don't want to read stright through. Highly recommended! Great price for 28 novels and short stories!

    Fascinating stories. If you love forensic mysteries this collection is terrific. Great $ value too.

    I had never heard of the Dr. Thorndyke mysteries until now. Sherlock Holmes stories are more exciting and quirky, since the characters are more idiosyncratic. Also, you have a single narrator, Dr. Watson. In the Thorndyke mysteries, each one has a different narrator, although they seem to share the same Victorian sensibilities and taste in women. It is nice that most of them result in a romance too, not just a resolution of the mystery, although one story is rather tragic and does not have a traditional happy ending with impending marriage or engagement. I like that the female characters are strong, if gentle, and some are very independent. Some even earn their own living, are intellectual or artistically talented and are brave. I recommend this book!

    Do you like CSI?

    If you are a CSI fan, this is the book for you - interesting stories and in depth "CSI" type solutions from the end of the 19th century.
