I didn't really enjoy this book,i found it too muddled and it didn't seem to flow.By the end i was just glad to finish the book and start another one.
I liked this book, a quirky little story, well written and quite amusing with a vast array of characters.An entertaining whodunnit ,I would recommend this book to read on a really cold miserable day, snuggled up in front of the fire with a large whiskey.
Dr Thorndyke is a brilliant character that makes this book worth reading,i like the idea of people using finger-print machines to collect fingerprints as you would collect books or stamps or something! worth reading
I agree with the previous reviews, brilliant book,brilliantly written by a master of his craft.
