The Return of Dr. Sam Johnson, Detector
James Boswell and Dr. Samuel Johnson team up to solve mysteries in this collection of brilliantly baffling historical crime stories. James Boswell is just twenty-two when he comes south from Scotland, determined to befriend Dr. Sam Johnson, the greatest thinker of the eighteenth century. But when he first goes to call on the legendary scholar, a hue and cry is raised throughout the neighborhood because a wealthy old invalid refuses to come to her door. It’s barred from the inside, and when Johnson and Boswell break in, they find the woman dead. There’s nothing like a good locked room mystery, and no detective quite as clever as Dr. Johnson. With Boswell at his side, he will solve the mystery of the barred door, using his wits against everything the killers and thieves of the Enlightenment throw his way. Inspired by real case files from the era, the Dr. Johnson detective stories recreate this period of history with uncanny realism. Funny, challenging, and genuinely thrilling, they are perfect for anyone who’s been searching for an eighteenth-century Sherlock Holmes.
