Volume V contains the seventh, eighth, and ninth full-length Thorndyke adventures, published in 1924, 1925, and 1926, respectively. With each subsequent narrative, Thorndyke’s skills and abilities grown and amaze.
- The Mystery of Angelina Frood – In which a doctor, newly arrived in Rochester, falls in love with Angelina Frood. When she abruptly vanishes, only Thorndyke’s skills can discover the truth in a most surprising manner.
- The Shadow of the Wolf – Two men depart on a boat, but only one returns. What follows is one of the best examples of Thorndyke’s method as he plays a deadly game with the player on the other side.
- The D’Arblay Mystery – A young doctor discovers a body in a pond. Was it an accident, or suicide, or murder? One thing is certain – the danger has not ended with just one death.
