The Complete Dr. Thorndyke – Volume V: The Mystery of Angelina Frood, The Shadow of the Wolf and The D’Arblay Mystery (Hardcover)

Author Name: R. Austin Freeman

Edited by: David Marcum

Volume V contains the seventh, eighth, and ninth full-length Thorndyke adventures, published in 1924, 1925, and 1926, respectively. With each subsequent narrative, Thorndyke’s skills and abilities grown and amaze.

  • The Mystery of Angelina Frood – In which a doctor, newly arrived in Rochester, falls in love with Angelina Frood. When she abruptly vanishes, only Thorndyke’s skills can discover the truth in a most surprising manner.
  • The Shadow of the Wolf – Two men depart on a boat, but only one returns. What follows is one of the best examples of Thorndyke’s method as he plays a deadly game with the player on the other side.
  • The D’Arblay Mystery – A young doctor discovers a body in a pond. Was it an accident, or suicide, or murder? One thing is certain – the danger has not ended with just one death.

The Complete Dr. Thorndyke – Volume IV: A Silent Witness, Helen Vardon’s Confession and The Cat’s Eye

Author Name: R. Austin Freeman

Edited by: David Marcum

Volume III contains the remaining half of the Thorndyke Short Stories. These, along with the contents of 2018’s Volume II (with the first half of the short stories and a few rare Apocryphal items), presents the complete short Thorndyke mysteries for a new generation.

In all, there are over forty Thorndyke short stories, spread over six books. This volume contains all twenty-five stories from the final three collections, Dr. Thorndyke’s CasebookThe Puzzle Lock, and The Magic Casket.

Some of the stories in this book are especially famous, as Freeman was the first to use the “inverted” mystery, in which the criminal (and how he did it) are identified during the first half of the story, and the second half of the narrative shows how Thorndyke solves it, in spite of the criminal’s every effort. (The “inverted” crime story was later used to great success by Columbo, as well as other detectives.)
