"Beyond Reasonable Doubt" is a collection of 12 crime stories set in the 19th century. The book is about an Anglo-Indian police officer Salman Curtis, who gets posted from the streets of London to Kolkata. He witnesses some of the most horrific crimes, detailing the investigative techniques that lead him to find the culprit. The depth with which the crime scenes are described in the chapters is commendable. The language used in the book is simple and lucid.
What makes this book different from other crime books is that all the stories in this book are about crimes that happened when there were no techniques and it is very difficult to catch the culprit. No mobile phone has been used by criminals or police. The police used to wait a long time for any kind of report, the transport was also so slow that the criminal got a fair time to escape. In today's era, we cannot even imagine how the police would have investigated at that time. These are some of the points that make it a unique read.
While reading this book I was constantly thinking about how difficult it was to investigate crime in that non-technological age.
If you are a crime thriller lover and want to read something different, then you can definitely pick up this book.
