At the start, I was really enjoying this mystery. Then Thorndike came on the scene and began to treat Dr. Jarvis as if he was a child. This treatment went on and on and began to annoy me. Obviously "stupid" Jarvis was used as a comparison to show how brilliant Thorndike was. Net result? I ended up disliking Detective Thorndike thoroughly. What an ego! ( )

This was a fun read, free on my Kindle. The doctor Jervis, however was made out to be so stupid that he couldn't put any obvious clues together ever. I found that kind of offensive after awhile and found myself thinking just reveal the solution already. ( )

The mystery in the book was a little too easy to solve with the criminal and the motive being obvious, but the setting and the good, solid characters almost make up for it. As always with Freeman's works, its the little details that make it a worthwhile read.. ( )

First words
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.

There he is asked to treat a man in a coma from unknown causes, but quickly comes to suspect that the man is being poisoned. With the help of Dr. John Thorndyke he is later able to find the house, but there is no trace of either the patient or those who summoned him.
