The Measure of Malice : Scientific Detection Stories, Paperback / softback Book

The Measure of Malice : Scientific Detection Stories Paperback / softback

Edited by Martin Edwards

Part of the British Library Crime Classics series

Paperback / softback

Description

The detective's role is simple: to catch the culprit.

Yet behind each casual observation lies a learned mind, trained on finding the key to the mystery.

Crimes, whatever their form, are often best solved through deliberations of logic - preferably amid complicated gadgetry and a pile of hefty scientific volumes.

The detectives in this collection are masters of scientific deduction, whether they are identifying the perpetrator from a single scrap of fabric, or picking out the poison from a sinister line-up.

Containing stories by R Austin Freeman, J J Connington and the master of logical reasoning, Arthur Conan Doyle, The Measure of Malice collects tales of rational thinking to prove the power of the human brain over villainous deeds.
