Some of the cases are familiar, such as the Merstham tunnel case of 1905, and the famous case dealing with Mr Briggs and his celebrated hat; but others are less well known, but still of great interest.
Detailed meticulous research enlivens these stories and they certainly make fascinating and absorbing reading.
Well recommended, but perhaps not for a long train journey.
