Summary
Dr. Thorndyke is an early proponent of forensic investigation; and there is the blind gumshoe Mac Carrados; and gentleman thief Simon Carne; and Mr. Carnacki who is a detective of the occult. These men pit their wits against the best that London's underworld has to offer. Victorian London was a boon for crooks and a bane to Scotland Yard, whose job it was to keep the city safe from criminals
