Professor Van Dusen: The Thinking Machine

Professor Van Dusen: The Thinking Machine
Look inside this book
Jacques Futrelle’s classic mystery, Professor Van Dusen: The Thinking Machine, introduces us to a determined, often impatient, and self-absorbed professor, also known as The Thinking Machine, who insists that logic will solve any problem. In this collection of ten stories, he more than proves his assertion. Whether he is playing his very first game of chess and beating a world champion, cracking a coded message to prevent a high-stakes jewelry heist, or retrieving a stolen painting from a wholly unsuspected house guest, the escapades of Professor Van Dusen provide a splendid romp for all lovers of traditional mysteries.

This JourneyForth classic is a light abridgement of the original novel.
