An entertaining collection of golden age mysteries, particularly those featuring Dr. Thorndyke.

I like the old school mysteries from time to time. Not earth-shattering but clever plots written nicely.

While the 'who' in this case seemed quite obvious to me, the 'how' baffled me. I got the strong feeling that Freeman's mysteries will mostly focus on the method of the crime (which is okay with me!).

While I enjoyed this 4th book in the Dr. Thorndyke series, it seemed unlikely to me that Jervis (who first enters Dr. Thorndyke's employment during the course of the book) couldn't make some connections that struck me as obvious such as his patient Graves had a specific type of injury to his right eye and Jeffery Blackmore had an injury to one of his eyes!.
