About the author:
R. (Richard) Austin Freeman (April 11, 1862 London - September 28, 1943 Gravesend) was a British writer of detective stories, mostly featuring the medico-legal forensic investigator Dr. Thorndyke.

Freeman invented the inverted detective story, a crime fiction in which the commission of the crime is described at the beginning, usually including the identity of the perpetrator, with the story then describing the detective's attempt (much llke Lt. Columbo) to solve the mystery.

A large proportion of the Dr Thorndyke stories involve genuine, but often quite arcane, points of scientific knowledge, from areas such as tropical medicine, metallurgy and toxicology, gleaned from Freeman's experience as a medical practicioner.

Freeman's book is published by Magic Lamp Press, where the complete modern set of Peter Sharp Legal Mysteries is also made available on through

The Mystery Of 31 New Inn

A Dr. Thorndyke Mystery

Authored by R. Austin Freeman

Much like the classic Sherlock Holmes stories,
forensic practioner Dr. Thorndyke's exploits are
told by his companion Christopher Jervis.

This mystery involves two cases that Thorndyke
And Jervis get involved with - one a man who is
apparently being poisoned, and another who is
already dead, but one of his heirs wants to contest
the Will.

Both cases seem impossible to Jervis, but not to
his mentor, Dr. Thorndyke, who sees clues where
none seem to exist.

While reading this book you may think you know
how it ends, but you will be wrong, because the
Way that Thorndyke wraps things up will come to
you as an unexpected surprise.
