The Thinking Machine on the Case by Jacques Futrelle
The Thinking Machine on the Case by Jacques FutrelleMy rating: 3 of 5 starsWritten in 1908 this is the first collection in a series of “The Thinking Machine”, otherwise known as Professor Van Dusen, short stories. Each story is broken up into two chapters making me think they may have originally been published in a serial manner. Because of the author’s name, I had assumed this would be a French detective but no, the man and the cases are American through and through. This is obviously a variation of the Holmes stories even including a “Watson”, Hutchinson Hatch, a journalist.
