Love nearly every Thorndyke book! Where Sherlock Holmes uses his powers of deduction, Dr. Thorndyke is one of the first forensic investigators. Freemans books were written in the beginning of the 20th century and it's amazing to see that he uses a science that we call "modern" in books that are nearly a century old. Very well written. Even after reading over 10 of them, each book is still very different.
