    About Author

    1. Richard Freeman was born in Soho, London on 11 April 1862 and was the son of Ann Maria nee Dunn and Richard Freeman, a tailor He was originally named Richard and later added the Austin to his name.He became a medical trainee at Middlesex Hospital Medical College and was accepted as a member of the Royal College of Surgeons.He married Annie Elizabeth Edwards in 1887 and they had two sons and after a few weeks of married life the couple found themselves in Accra on the Gold Coast where he was assistant surgeon His time in Africa produced plenty of hard work, very little money and ill health, so much so that after seven years he was invalided out of the service in 1891 He wrote his first book, Travels and Life in Ashanti and Jaman , which was published in 1898 It was critically acclaimed but made very little money.On his return to England he set up an eye ear nose throat pactice but in due course his health forced him to give up medicine although he did have occasional temporary posts and in World War I he was in the ambulance corps.He became a writer of detective stories, mostly featuring the medico legal forensic investigator Dr Thorndyke The first of the books in the series was The Red Thumb Mark 1907 His first published crime novel was The Adventures of Romney Pringle 1902 and was a collaborative effort published under the pseudonym Clifford Ashdown Within a few years he was devoting his time to full time writing.With the publication of The Singing Bone 1912 hee invented the inverted detective story a crime fiction in which the commission of the crime is described at the beginning, usually including the identity of the perpetrator, with the story then describing the detective s attempt to solve the mystery Thereafter he used some of his early experiences as a colonial surgeon in his novels.A large proportion of the Dr Thorndyke stories involve genuine, but often quite arcane, points of scientific knowledge, from areas such as tropical medicine, metallurgy and toxicology.He died in Gravesend on 28 September 1943.

    1. Since I don t normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here s the break down of how I rate my books1 star This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.2 stars This book was not very good, and I won t be reading any from the author.3 stars This book was ok, but I won t go out of my way to read , But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I d pick it up.4 stars I really enjoyed t [...]


    2. The Thorndyke mysteries are a lot of fun early, early CSI stuff.His heroines are very modern intelligent, well spoken, for the most part calm in a crisis The treatment of women alone makes these worth the read.


    3. A good series of mysteries although each tended to be just a bit too detailed I enjoyed reading them and working with Thorndyke as he found the clues, like puzzle pieces, and fitted them in to the situation.



    4. Very good deductive mysteries R Austin Freeman was himself a doctor, if I recall rightly, and I love his main character, Dr Thorndyke.


    5. Lots of great Sherlock Holmes like stories Atheistic protagonist but not overly antagonistic to Christians.
