The Mystery Of 31 New Inn A Dr Thorndyke Mystery from the Author: R. Austin Freeman. This early work by Richard Austin Freeman was originally published in 1912 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introduction. 'The Mystery of 31 New Inn' is one of Freeman's novels of crime and mystery. The first story featuring his well-known protagonist Dr. Thorndyke – a medico-legal forensic investigator – was published in 1907, and although Freeman's early works were seen as simple homages to his contemporary, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, he quickly developed his own style: The 'inverted detective story', in which the identity of the criminal is shown from the beginning, and the story then describes the detective's attempt to solve the mystery.

The Mystery Of 31 New Inn from the Author: R. Austin R. Austin Freeman. AS I look back through the years of my association with John Thorndyke, I am able to recall a wealth of adventures and strange experiences such as falls to the lot of very few men who pass their lives within hearing of Big Ben. Many of these experiences I have already placed on record; but it now occurs to me that I have hitherto left unrecorded one that is, perhaps, the most astonishing and incredible of the whole series; an adventure, too, that has for me the added interest that it inaugurated my permanent association with my learned and talented friend, and marked the close of a rather unhappy and unprosperous period of my life.Memory, retracing the journey through the passing years to the starting-point of those strange events, lands me in a shabby little ground-floor room in a house near the Walworth end of Lower Kennington Lane. A couple of framed diplomas on the wall, a card of Snellen's test-types and a stethoscope lying on the writing-table, proclaim it a doctor's consulting-room; and my own position in the round-backed chair at the said table, proclaims me the practitioner in charge.

The Red Thumb Mark The Eye Of Osiris The Mystery Of 31 New Inn 3 British Mystery Classics In One Volume from the Author: R. Austin Freeman. This carefully crafted ebook: “THE RED THUMB MARK, THE EYE OF OSIRIS & THE MYSTERY OF 31 NEW INN (3 British Mystery Classics in One Volume)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Dr. John Thorndyke is a fictional detective in a series of novels. He is a medical jurispractitioner - originally a medical doctor, he turned to the bar and became one of the first, in modern parlance, forensic scientists. His solutions were based on his method of collecting all possible data (including dust and pond weed) and making inferences from them before looking at any of the protagonists and motives in the crimes. It is this method which gave rise to one of Freeman's most ingenious inventions, the inverted detective story, where the criminal act is described first and the interest lies in Thorndyke's subsequent unraveling of it. Richard Austin Freeman (1862-1943) was a British writer of detective stories, mostly featuring the medico-legal forensic investigator Dr. Thorndyke. Freeman used some of his early experiences as a colonial surgeon in his novels. Many of the Dr. Thorndyke stories involve genuine, but often quite arcane, points of scientific knowledge, from areas such as tropical medicine, metallurgy and toxicology.

The Mystery At Number 31 New Inn from the Author: R. Austin Freeman. In the grand tradition of the great sleuths brought to life by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle comes another master. John Thorndyke is cerebral, meticulous, British, and underestimated. When Thorndyke's assistant, Dr. Jervis, gets a mysterious summons to ride to an undisclosed location in a sealed-off carriage, there are signs of a dangerous plot aloof. Patiently, logically, using all his prowess for jurisprudence, Thorndyke maneuvers his way through a labyrinth of clues: broken glass, an upside down picture, a veiled woman, a box of candles. Others have declared the case "impossible," and Jervis, too, has his doubts. Will the mystery at Number 31 prove in the end to be even Thorndyke proof? - Back cover.

Das Mysterium Von Notting Hill from the Author: Charles Warren Adams. Es ist der Urkriminalroman – der allererste Kriminalroman der Literaturgeschichte: einzigartig in seiner Form und ĂŒberraschend in seiner ModernitĂ€t, den Leser mit der LektĂŒre der Ermittlungsdossiers an der Lösung des RĂ€tsels zu beteiligen. In einer Zeit, in der sich das Genre des Krimis etwa bei Edgar Allan Poe gerade erfand, wagte sich 1862 ein anonymer Autor auf unbekanntes Terrain: erstmalig stand das Aufrollen der Vorgeschichte eines Mordes im Mittelpunkt eines Romans. Der Ermittler Mr. Henderson, beauftragt von der Life Insurance Association, soll herausfinden, ob Baron R**, ein begabter Chemiker, seine Frau vergiftet hat – sie starb an einem Becher SĂ€ure. Ihre fĂŒnffache Lebensversicherung erhĂ€rtet den Mordverdacht. Das zusammengestellte Akten-Mosaik besteht aus Krankenhausberichten, Zeugenaussagen, Heiratsurkunden, TagebuchauszĂŒgen sowie Briefen und beleuchtet quer durch alle Schichten das viktorianische Zeitalter. Die nĂŒchterne Aktenform steht im spannungsreichen Kontrast zum mysteriösen Geschehen: Kinder werden von Zigeunern gestohlen, ein letzter Wille verspricht Reichtum, der VerdĂ€chtige hat verdĂ€chtig grĂŒne Augen, fragwĂŒrdige Heilmethoden bestimmen den Handlungsverlauf, statt einem Mord gab es gleich drei ... Obwohl die Akten die Schuld des Barons nahelegen, scheint es, als habe dieser das perfekte Verbrechen begangen. Virtuos verstĂ¶ĂŸt der erste Kriminalroman gegen die goldene Regel des Genres: Kein RĂ€tsel ohne AufklĂ€rung. »Meine Aufgabe ist erledigt. Im Besitz aller Indizien, die vor ihnen ausgebreitet sind, wird ihr Urteil darĂŒber so gut sein wie meins.« Charles Warren Adams (1833-1903) war der Erfinder des Kriminalromans »Das Mysterium von Notting Hill«, der erstmalig anonym 1862 als achtteiliger Fortsetzungsroman in der Zeitschrift »Once a Week« und 1865 als Buch unter dem Pseudonym Charles Felix erschienen war. Erst in den letzten Jahren konnte ein amerikanischer Literaturprofessor Charles Warren Adams‘ Autorenschaft zweifelsfrei belegen. Der studierte Jurist, der Verlagsleiter wurde, Insolvenz (!) erlitt, danach SekretĂ€r der Gesellschaft gegen Tierversuche wurde und mit der Heirat der Tochter des zweithöchsten Richters einen gesellschaftlichen Skandal erregte, gab sich zeit seines Lebens nicht als Autor zu erkennen.
