Dr Sam: Johnson Detective

Posted by Tory Historian Wednesday, March 23, 2011

Searching through second-hand detective stories in Charing Cross Road Tory Historian found a collection of Lillian de la Torre's stories about Dr Johnson, entitled The Detections of Dr. Sam: Johnson.

Tory Historian has, in the past, expressed reservations about some historical detective stories but the first two stories of Ms de la Torre's collection, The Tontine Curse and The Stroke of Thirteen deserve nothing but praise if only for the delightful pastiche of that likeable coxcomb, James Boswell's writings.
